    No replies? Really? What is this then? :)
    The Aviary would start with an exhibit called the Far North, for red-crowned cranes and tufted deer. It would be about 1 acre, with trees, grass, pines, and other features mimicking Russia and the forests of China. The next exhibit, Amazon, would have large trees (kapok) with bromeliads, palms and large flowers of the Amazon. Red-eyed tree frogs and strawberry poison frogs would share space with cock-of-the-rock, green and curl-crested aracari, keel-billed and toco toucan, scarlet macaw, sun conure, roseate spoonbill, wattled jacana and scarlet ibis. It would be all indoor but around 2 acres. Agoutis would scoot on the ground around the frogs. Big Birds of the African Plains would be 2 acres and netted with several types of savannah grass and trees. Ostriches, secretary birds, Abdim storks and Kori bustard would all share a large netted space. Gum Forest would have kookaburras in the trees and emus on the ground. It would be 1.5 acres with eucalyptus trees, a waterfall, and off-show enclosures for the birds. Lorikeet Forest would have red lory, rainbow lorikeet, Weber lorikeet, blue mountain lorikeet, dusky lory, black lory, and green-naped lorikeet on 2 acres (with offshow boxes for each species, eucalyptus trees, hiding holes, and a feeding window (nectar for $1). New Guinea Forest would have 1 acre for southern cassowary and another .5 acre (in the same enclosure, but netted separately) for tree kangaroo (MAtschies) and echidna. It would be densely forested, with a muddy area, logs for echidna, trees, and enrichment. All of Asia would have golden pheasant, Reeves' pheasant, Indian muntjac, bird of paradise (Raggiana), and sarus crane in 2 acres, with signage, glass viewing caves, enrichment, trees, grass, mud, and a large (.5) acre pool. Eastern US would be 2 acres with leaf litter, rocks, acorns, logs, and tall deciduous trees. Song sparrow, brown thrasher, northern cardinl, American goldfinch, tufted titmouse, blue jay, black cap and Carolina chickadee, northern flicker and downy woodpecker would share the 2 acres. Marshes and Swamps would be another 2 acres for snowy egret, great egret, great blue heron, moorhen, purple gallinule, American coot, mallard, Canada goose, and wood duck. It would have mud, cattails, reeds, grass, and also a colony of green frogs and some painted turtles and bullfrogs. Farm Birds would have 1 acre for chickens and turkeys and 1 acre for waterfowl- ducks and geese. New Zealand would be 1 acre on the ground for kiwi, separated by glass from 2 acres for kea, kaka and kakapo. South American Plains would have 3 acres, for rheas, crested screamers, piping guan and alpacas. It would be grassy but have a pool, trees, mud and enrichment for alpacas.

    List of exhibit
    1. Chinese Passage
    2. Serengeti
    3. Amazonia
    4. *coming soon
    My target is to house 650 species from 20 exhibit
    The first exhibit is scheduled to be released tonight

    Chinese Passage
    This exhibit is the first part of my zoo
    You come across a sign saying "CHINESE PASSAGE" Now its time to enter the exhibit, a 1 acre enclosure will be the the first to view, it currently houses 4 female
    giant pandas. A male is in a separate enclosure next to the females. Now, opposite the pandas is the red panda, they will be resting on the trees or fooling around. A
    watered exhibit will have a island in middle of it. Its the fishing cat home. Now the next animal is next to the red pandas. A lake with a stream connecting it to the
    70-foot Carnegie waterfall. it have exotic plants from China for the Asian small-clawed otter to hide in. Now you'll hear laughing from next to the fishing cats. Its
    hidden somewhere in the lush plants in its enclosure. But look up at the trees, a bird will stand on a branch staring at the visitor, its called the blue-crowned
    laughingthrush. The next animal, is really a mysterious cat which live in a half acre enclosure withe rock steppes and trees its the mighty binturong or the bear-cat.
    The next enclosure is rocky-themed with plants inserted in the concrete with a soft texture. It houses a herd of Chinese goral. The next animal is a tiger native
    to China, the indochinese tiger, in its well-designed 1-acre enclosure with hundred of plant everywhere. There will be a rocky mountain at the back to resemble Chinese
    forsets. The next animal is really loud with a trunk, its the Asian elephant eating hay to keep full. Now the next enclosure is a mixed one, with Reeves muntjac and
    tufted deer in their sub-tropical enclosure. The next animal will draw attention from their swinging, its the white-cheeked gibbon with their babies clinging on to mum
    while shes grooming it. The next bird is endangered and lives in wetland-themed enclosure cleverly designed. its the red-crowned crane. The next animal is a fericous
    raptor, living in mountains-themed enclosure. its the mountain hawk eagle. the next colourful animal is, again a bird in fact, Himalayan monal. This species of monal
    also lives in China. Now the Chinese aviary houses two species: azure-winged magpie and smew. The enclosure will be heated for the magpie. They also have a out-door
    enclosure featuring trees and a large pond. The next animal lives almost everywhere in the world, its usually found near the pond in its enclosure. its the cattle egret
    The water monitor will enjoy a special light and a big pond in its bedroom-sized enclosure. The pond will be deep for the monitor to practise its diving skills.
    The next reptile is sure a strangler found in rainforset, it will slither in the floor and even in its heated pond. The burmese python will enjoy eating meat. the
    next fish is a big predator found in rivers. The Chinese emperor will swim around the tree roots in its enclosure. The next insect dwells the deep sea floor looking
    for food in its big enclosure. its the deep sea isopod. The next animal is like a wild ass. But its different, the onager. The next animal shares its enclosure which
    is 80-foot tall enclosure with Chinese alligator, its the great hornbill. The enclosure is extremely tall so the hornbills can avoid get snatched by the alligator.
    It have tall
    trees and lush plants so the bird can get on the ground safely without being seen by the alliagtor. The next mammal is striking red, but its also a snatcher, in its
    wooded enclosure, the red fox. The Bactrian camel lives in a soil-floored enclosure munching on the hays and sitting on the tall rocks. Two species ampihibans share
    a enclosure which is 50% water: Chinese fire-bellied newt and the fire-bellied toad. A barn enclosure with hays and pen will house barn owls. Eurasian eagle owls will
    scare visitor with their acrobat flying. Wolverines will walk to the glass and sometimes, scaring visitors in their tundra exhibit. Snow leopards will rest on the rocks
    staring at the visitors. Francois langurs will cluch on their ginger babies, insecting the visitor who are its intruder. Now a variety of enclosures in a building will
    house the following species:
    Termites
    Dermestid beetles
    Dung beetles
    Giant water bug
    Honey bees
    Now a glassed enclosure will displays mandarin ducks swimming or sitting on a island. Lar gibbons will swing at the tops looking for predators. There will be also a pond
    in the middle of the enclosure for drinks. Yellow-throated martens lives near the alligator and hornbills. They will be fed meats triple time a week. Bengalese finchs are next to the gibbons.
    their enclosure is neatly done to resemble rainforset. Black-crowned night heron will live next to the insect building. They will scurry in their ponds looking for
    fishes in their wooded enclosure. The Chinese Aviary will houses the following species:
    Common pochard
    Little egret
    Grey peacock-pheasant
    White stork
    Falcated duck
    Koi fish
    White-naped crane
    Golden pheasant
    Baer's pochard
    Now its time to tell the carnivore section:
    Clouded leopard
    Asian golden cat
    Pallas cat
    Marbled cat
    Eurasian lynx
    Raccoon dog
    Dhole
    Sun bear
    Siberian weasel
    Smooth-coated otter
    And the two last animals will share a enclosure they are the golden snub-nosed monkey and Przewalski's horse in a 1 acre exhibit
    When you exit you will eat in a Chinese cafe
    I will come back tomorrow with the second section: Serengeti

    Create a zoo for me

    I didn't felt like posting this in the fantasy zoos, I've been having trouble designing my 365-acres zoo, Dunfermline Zoo. I will choose a lucky winner exhibit to write down on a paper. The Reptile House must houses 125 species and these include fishes but only a small portion of species under 20 species

    Really why then can I find no planning application on any of the local councils planning sites then?????If this was for real then some form of planning WOULD BE REQUIRED under UK law!!!!

    So as a result of the above I would say this is yet another FANTASY ZOO!!!
