    I thought I would share with everyone that in my library of zoo guide books, I have a San Diego Wild Animal Park photo caravan guide from 2002. Like the threads listed above, the purpose of this thread was to share a list of species from this guide book in their respective areas, you can read through these threads to see how the SDWAP (I refuse to call it Safari Park) and its collection has changed over the years. I hope you find this interesting. See species list below
