Boy is it cold out. Had the day off and went exploring the zoo. A lot of animals were off exhibit both outside (which was expected since it was 8 out ish) and inside which surprised me. Notes of interest. Construction has been stalled on both Adventure Africa and the West side enterance, which is expected due to the holidays. The serval, African cat, exhibit is almost fully open. There is just one more piece of paper blocking the exhibit. Also, I noticed awhile back, the zoo has some duplicates of some primates in both the primates building and small mammals, the Cotton Top Tamarian and the Goeldi’s. This surprises me! I feel that the small mammal building is a neglected area cause there is less variety of species of animals that could be there, and the vacant exhibits become expand ones for others. The armadillo for example has been moved to a larger exhibit, plus a smaller one next to it. It appears to be a bit much, and the same goes for the Tamarians, and the Goeldis. Also they have continued promote otters but the otters haven’t been in the building for over a year. Maybe it’s time for a new sponsor for the building to rejuvenate the building.
