    I choose Lowland Anoa, we have a 950sq ft paddock which is nicely planted with a few open areas which are usually near the viewing windows. The paddock wall will consist of a 15ft tall bamboo walls to embrace the feeling of being in South East Asia. There’s many trees, a few of which are palm. At the right hand side is a pond with a waterfall which is beautiful. Despite this being outside, foggers Rest on the walls facing downwards to give a misty feeling. We also have sprinklers on the walls and on the ground which will smash the likes of other enclosures for Anoas. Vines will be connected from trees to the walls. The waterfall is nicely planted with ivy. We have a breeding group of anoas. The indoor quarters are visible to the public but are embedded with sound proof technology to settle the anoas, the windows has Double panes. There will be various signage which are mostly interactive, giving you an insight of the anoas' lives in the wild, what threatens them. Hope you enjoy this :D

    You are supposed to get chosen a species for you, you can't choose it yourself.

    We have a 3 acres large paddock, with a mixture of sand and grass. There will be a few concrete areas lightly covered in sand to settle the elephants feet. In the middle will be a 1 acre pond with a water fall for the elephants to muck around. The pond will be sloped with the deepest end being 8.5ft deep. Keepers will enrich the elephants with hidden hay in the water, keeping the elephants active but also keeping them both full and hydrated. A few trees will dot around the paddock. The visitors will be separated from the elephants via a metal gate, like at Chester. At the rear will be a small enclosure for their closest relative, the rock hyrax. The hyrax's enclosure is entirely indoor in the elephant's quarters viewing area. The enclosure replicated a African mountain, rocky with batches of grass and sand.
    Here in the paddock 1.4 African elephants reside, along with 2:4 hyraxs.

    You're gonna get an EXHIBIT, not an animal.

    Design an open ocean tank with at least 5 fish and 1 species of sea turtle.

    This exhibit, one part of a larger nocturnal house, will be cave-like. The bats, a group of 10 males and 10 females, will have plenty of space to fly and roost. Keepers will also give the bats live insects for enrichment and food.

    Can I have another species?

    Hmm, ok then, I'll try! ;)
    The large aquarium would be called Hawaiian Holiday Harbor; it would be about the same size as Manatee Springs in the Cincinnati Zoo. There would be two Green sea turtles (male and female), two lagoon triggerfish (male and female), four whitetip reef sharks (two males, two females), four spotted eagle rays (two males, two females), a shoal of 10 crimson shoalfish (4 males, 6 females), and five broad stingrays (2 males, 3 females).
    The floor of the tank would be sandy, but there would be two large rock formations on either side, providing hiding places for the sharks, and in the middle there would be a third structure, imitating a coral reef, with a tiny islet with sand on top, in case the turtles become gravid and want to lay eggs. The glass ceiling above would allow the entrance of sunlight, and at night an artificial moonlight would shine from above. Seagrass would also be grown in there in patches.
