    I have been wanting to go out to see the new tiger exhibit. I am a Diamond Club member so I can get in (with free parking) no problem. These new cubs may be the deciding factor to make me hop in the Prius and head out west.

    That's not much of an article at all. There wasn't even a mention of the zoo's Frozen Zoo. I, for one, would have liked to have read more.


    .

    That's a pretty good success rate I would say. That's nearly two per year!

    I have a question regarding Lion Camp, though. We're the lions moved from their hillside because the zoo wanted separate biomes, or for a different reason? I suggested in conversation that they were partially moved to give them greater visual stimuli with an overlook onto the "Serengeti". Now I can't even recall if Lion Camp actually overlooks it or not.
