I just uploaded approximately 50 photos of this zoo in the gallery. Here is my mini-review from my recent 20 day/65 zoo trip: The zoo only opened in 1999 and so 15 years later everything feels fresh and clean, with modern animal habitats and nicely manicured lawns. After a glass-fronted exhibit in the entrance building (white-faced saki, six-banded armadillo, two-toed sloth) the rest of the zoo specializes in cold-weather creatures and is neatly divided into North American and Asian sections. North America has these species: Grey Wolf (huge exhibit), River Otter (brand new), Grey Fox, Black-Tailed Prairie Dog, Golden and Bald Eagles (in a gorgeous open-fronted aviary), Mule Deer, White-Tailed Deer and Porcupine. “Scales and Tails” is a small Reptile House with about 20 species including an albino Tiger Salamander and an albino Alligator Snapping Turtle. The Asian zone is very impressive and has the following species: Red Panda (the zoo has bred at least a dozen in the past decade or so), Bactrian Camel, Reeve’s Muntjac, a walk-through aviary, Brown-Eared Pheasant, Russian Red Squirrel, Pallas’ Cat, White-Naped Crane and Sichuan Takin. There are only about 16 outdoor exhibits in total plus about 20 indoor terrariums but everything is new, top-notch and hugely impressive. A great little gem of a zoo but one that can be seen in a flash. I’d love to see them add Amur Tigers, Amur Leopards or Snow Leopards to fit the Asian theme and provide visitors with a big cat to see. In the next few months the zoo is opening a so-called “Baviary”, which is a large building that will have birds, bats and small animals.
