    Ah, my home zoo.
    The Rainforest is the best, with orangutans, capybaras, Francois langurs, Prevost (tricolor) squirrels, many herps on the lower level, gharial and dwarf crocs on the lower level, many (at least 4-5) tarantula species, etc. The anteaters pace incessantly, and the two cat species (fishing cat and ocelot) do as well. There are also more fish and turtles on the upper level, moues deer and mynas sharing an enclosure (where the tarsier was until it died in 2006), Asian small clawed otters, and more.
    Northern Trek is an atrocity. The wolf wilderness exhibit is nice, but the wolves pace and there are tons of coins dropped in the wetlands exhibit, with beavers, fish, ducks, turtles, a male Lady Amherst's pheasant, a magpie, and I think a bald eagle. The camel (Bactrian) looks weird, with matted hair. The bears and tigers live in outdated grottoes. The seal/sea lion exhibit is also bad, and the Penguin Shores, a temporary penguin exhibit, is a joke. 6 penguins in a tiny box not good enough for 1.
