    The Thompson Castle Zoological Gardens

    Entrance Building

    This building will be where you purchase tickets and enter the small zoo, it will have a small exhibit with the Goliath Birdeater (626) in.

    Aquatic Building
    Will feature 2 large tanks either side of the walkway, one home to Japanese Eels (680) and the other home to Common Octopus (556). In the centre there will be a small tank with a group of Banded Archerfish (664).

    Komodo Dragon House
    A large building with an indoor and outdoor enclosure for Komodo Dragons (388). This building will also feature enclosures for Tuatara (398) and a mixed enclosure holding Madagascan Spiny Tailed Iguanas (369) and Radiated Tortoises (742).

    China
    This will be the main attraction of the zoo and will hold their marquee animal. You will enter the exhibit through some very lush foliage and you will come to a bridge, which leads over a large outdoor enclosure for the Chinese Alligator (470). You will continue through a greenhouse with an indoor area for this species. You will then exit the greenhouse into a wooden tunnel which will be heavily themed and feature a lot of educational boards and displays about the next animal you will see. You will approach a large viewing window, overlooking a large enclosure for the Chinese Pangolin (114). Smaller viewing windows will also allow gusts to view their smaller indoor enclosure.

    55 : Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)
    429 : Rhinoceros viper (Bitis rhinoceros)
    220 : Speckled mousebird (Colius striatus)
    439 : African Rock Python (Python sebae)
    49 : Common treeshrew (Tupaia glis)
    406 : Monocled Cobra (Naja kaouthia)
    5 : Linnaeus Mouse Opossum (Marmosa murina)
    258 : Black-necked Stilt (Himantopus mexicanus)
    744 : Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus)
    386 : Philippine Sailfin Lizard (Hydrosaurus pustulatus)

    Sorry for my English level, it isn't my native language.

    My zoo is (at the beginning) based on equatorial species and ecosystems.

    The visit starts with Africa : two island allow to see groups of Western Lowland Gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla). One of them is a bachelor group (4.0), the second is a family group with a male, several females and their offspring (3.5). We can see the primates either on the islands, either in the 2 first indoor enclosures of a huge greenhouse.
    When you come in the greenhouse, you can see a lot of tropical plants and, at the entrance, a small aviary for a group of Speckled Mousebirds (7.7).
    The discovery of African wildlife continues with 2 huge terrariums with rocks and stumps : the visitor can see a Rhinoceros viper and an African rock python, that represent the most prominent snake species of Africa.

    Then the visitor walks in a tunnel : he comes in the Asian realm now.
    2 terrariums show reptile species too. They are smaller than African ones but full of plants. They house a Monocled Cobra, and some Philippine Sailfin Lizards (1.1).
    After, there's an aviary that looks like the Mousebirds aviary of the African section of the zoo : there are Common Treeshrews (0.0.4) in this place, that are difficult to see so the visitor must be patient to see them in the vegetation.

    The third section of the greenhouse has a South American theme. It is still in progress ; only 2 species could be seen there.
    A small terrarium house Linnaeus Mouse Opossums (0.0.5). They have already bred in the place but they are difficult to see too.
    Before the exit of the greenhouse, we can see Black-necked Stilts (0.0.9) in a pond. These birds breed easily in this place, where there's an island to allow them to raise their young.
    This place could allow the housing and breeding of more species (including rare and endangered) of South American birds later.

    The selection of the day :

    66 : Egyptian Roussette (Rousettus aegyptiacus)
    129 : African Leopard (Panthera pardus pardus)
    566 : Central American Giant Cave Cockroach (Blaberus giganteus)
    476 : Siamese Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis)
    649 : Guppy (Poecilia reticulata)
    642 : Cardinal Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)
    467 : African helmeted Turtle (Pelomedusa subrufa)
    511 : Fire Salamander (Salamandra salamandra)
    286 : Bateleur (Terathopius ecaudatus)
    571 : Common Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita)

    The progress of my zoo continues, with new species.
    New exhibits are built or planned, and the zoo starts to house some animals confiscated from smugglers by the customs or given from private owners.

    In the African zone, an outdoor enclosure of 500 m² houses an African Leopard (1.0). This animal has been found as an orphan in Kenya, and raised by a private owner. Now as this cat becomes too big, it was difficult for him to keep it, and it was impossible to release it in nature. This new dweller of the zoo could attract new visitors, and it's hoped to create a larger section for other African carnivores.
    Near of the Leopard enclosure, a new aviary houses 2 juvenile Bateleurs (1.1).
    In the tunnel of the African part of the greenhouse (before the Asian section) an artificial cave houses a huge colony of Egyptian fruit bats (50.50) that should breed quickly.
    There's also a middle-sized aquaterrarium in the African section of the greenhouse, with young African helmeted Turtles (4.1) ; when they will grow larger, they should go in a new exhibit, maybe an inner enclosure with fish and crocodiles, and they will be replaced by frogs or small fish.

    In the Asian section of the greenhouse, there's a new enclosure with rare Siamese Crocodiles (1.1).
    They will complete the Asian reptiles exhibit, along with Cobras and Sailfin Lizards.

    The Neotropical part is enriched with a small terrarium with Central American Giant Cave Cockroaches (0.0.80). In this place there are animations about the biology of Cockroaches and the stereotypes about them (I really wonder why how many people hate them !).
    Near of this terrarium, a tank houses huge groups of Cardinal Tetras (0.0.200) and Guppys (0.0.600). These species are really common, but it will be the base of a South American aquarium, with rarer species.

    The next section to open could be seen after the greenhouse.
    It's an European section where there's only one species now : the Fire Salamander (0.0.25) in a small pond. Around the pond there's a damp enclosure with a lot of mosses. The animals are difficult to see, but it's the purpose of the zoo to promote knowledge and protection of European Amphibians.

    Finally, another species enters the collection : the Common Jellyfish (0.0.200).
    For now, this species remains in backstage, waiting for the opening of a Sea Aquarium.

    My daily selection :

    266 : Wandering Albatross (Diomedea exulans)
    422 : Western Green Lizard (Lacerta bilineata)
    96 : Blue Wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus)
    670 : European Pilchard (Sardina pilchardus)
    104 : Serval (Leptailurus serval)
    150 : Commerson's Dolphin (Cephalorhynchus commersonii)
    431 : Asp Viper (Vipera aspis)
    204 : Great Bustard (Otis tarda)
    236 : Common Crane (Grus grus)
    476 : ther isn't any animal corresponding to this number !

    New developments of my zoo :

    In the African section, there's an enclosure for Blue Wildebeests (1.3) : the building of other enclosures is planned for several African ungulates. Near of it and of the Leopard enclosure, a grassy enclosure houses some Servals (2.0).

    The European section continues its development, with 2 pits for reptiles : Western Green Lizards (3.3) and an Asp Viper (1.0). The visitors can see the animals near the Salamander.
    Moreover, 2 meadows house great birds : Great Bustards (1.4) and a pair of Common Cranes with a juvenile (1.1.1). Behind the meadows, a center is built to breed several pairs of Great Bustards, in the purpose to reintroduce the offspring in different European countries where they vanished - or in the best cases, became very rare - in the past (France, Germany, Britain, Poland...).

    The marine aquarium finally opened with two tanks : the first for the Jellyfish, the second for a big school of European Pilchards (0.0.250).
    An outdoor pool allows to see beautiful Commerson's Dolphins (3.3), and, even more strangely, 2 Wandering Albatrosses (1.1) that were found wounded in the Kerguelen shores. This section of the zoo could be enriched with other Antarctic/Subantarctic species.

    663. Caribbean Reef Shark
    620. Spike-Topped Apple Snail
    195. Tawny Frogmouth

    Entrance Building
    The entrance of the zoo opens you up to your journey. Here you’ll purchase your tickets for the attraction, find some dining and shopping available to you. There are a few creatures you’ll see on your quick stop in the entrance of the zoo. you’ll see a viewing area for the threatened Monarch Butterfly (Danaus Plexippus).
    Their aviary extends into an outdoor viewing area where you will also be able to see them. There is also a very small and tiny exhibit home to the Spike-Topped Apple Snail (Pomacea Bridgesii). There is also a small viewing of an aviary with the Emerald-Chinned Hummingbird (Abeillia Abeillei). After that, you’ll be brought into the outdoor plaza to begin your journey.

    The Caribbean Conservatory
    This exhibit takes you on a path through different wildlife species of the Caribbean islands. Your journey starts with a large, tropical aviary home to the Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea Ajaja), a large, colorful pink bird. We continue the tropical theme down the buildings pathway to the next small habitat, home to the endangered Rhinoceros Iguana (Cyclura Cornuta). These endangered iguanas are native to the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Island chain. The final animal we see on our journey through these islands is the Caribbean Reef Shark (Carcharhinus Perezii). They live in a large aqua-terrarium with a tropical ocean reef habitat. That concludes our Caribbean journey.

    Deserts & Cliffs Of The World
    As we journey to discover the gems of the deserts and cliffs, we are traveling through 4 different continents to see how four different animals adapt in different environments. the first animal we have on our trail is the Gemsbok (Oryx Gazella), a large species of African gazelle with a large outdoor viewing to their habitat. These creatures are native to Southwestern Africa in the Kalahari Desert. Next on our journey, we travel to Australia to see the adorable Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus Strigoides). These birds are found spending their days in the high treetops of the arid regions. Now we are moving into colder regions of the world, starting with the Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula Arctica), which live in sub-arctic cliff sides. Their exhibit is designed as an aquarium cliff side, with an indoor viewing area. Lastly on our journey is the wild Pallas Cat (Otocolobus Manul). These adorable wild cats can be found in mountain regions of Asia. As the trailway takes you out of the mountain theme, we exit to the main plaza of the park.

    Yes, yes it is. Specifically my thread. I won't raise a big thing about it, but @Just an ordinary guy could you have at least DM-ed me to let you know you were making an improved version of my thread?

    Edit: Not to say I don't like it, I just made my list now. I just want some credit as the thread that you got inspiration from.
