    Thank you for this quality site. I have been referring to it for several years.
    Actually I think we talked for a few minutes during your visit to Toronto Zoo. Afterwards I realized why "that guy" looked familiar.

    Your website is very slow and buggy...

    A fairly ungracious response to an endeavour which has clearly taken an enormous amount of effort, imagination and creativity! For what it’s worth, I’d say it’s an essential site for anyone with any zoo interest. And I’ve never found it to be either “slow” or “buggy”...

    Excellent :)

    Incidentally, there are a handful of species you have photographs of on your website which are currently unrepresented in the Zoochat gallery and which would be handy for my species taxonomy guide threads - if I come up with a list of which species I am thinking of, would you be so kind as to upload copies of these photographs into the gallery?

    You are wlecome to add these photographs! I just don't have a time these days. The only problem, I would like to mention zooinstitutes.com in a credit, but I don't know how to perform that.

    If I have your permission to take any required photographs from your site and upload them to the gallery, I will naturally be happy to post a comment along the lines of the following in the image description:
