Visited this zoo yesterday and after the stories about the closing by the government I was worried about what to find. There was some construction work going on. But still it's quiet outdated at many places. - Chimpansee were in a very poor exhibit - Stuffed animal collection could need a big clean and the skulls some rearangements as there were parts all over the place and several stuck between the shelfs of the cabinet and door. - I walked thru a walk thru aviary and got outsider to find out I was in an area I wasn't suppose to be. Not a terrible thing but still weird. - Pair of white lions had a small enclosure - I am no lion expert, but I expect it is not ideal to have a pair of lions directly besides a lone male lion and only have fence in between. I must say they roared a lot what is quiet a spectacle. - The windows from the lynx exhibit were so scrathed it was difficult to have a decent look at the animals - The individual kept panter (previous partner of Malik) was highly focused on all the dogs walking around. As I am no expert on this issue I wonder if it is a stress factor or a form of enrichment for the animal? - In general the aviaries were spacious. - The tropical hall was good. - The bear and wolve enclosures were spacious. - Some cranes were breeding and trying to get the visitors who came close to the enclosure. - I think the entrance fee of € 22,- (in summer) is not in balance with the general condition of the zoo. I hope this money will be spend well in the near future for new developments and improvements.
