    Can someone also give me a list of all species.

    I'm not quite sure you realize the undertaking you're asking. :p At any rate,the closest you're likely to get are Geomorph's wonderful species lists from just over 2 years ago. The problem is species on exhibit change almost constantly in San Diego,plus there's no accounting for the species that are off-exhibit. Unless you had an actual employee from the San Diego Zoo on here it'd be tough to get the full number,and it'd require a ZooChatter with a lot of extra time to visit the zoo to type up the list of species on exhibit.

    aimalszoos,

    The following is a list of the mammal species I saw in permanent exhibits on 4-7-16; I did not make notes on that day so these are the species I remember seeing and some of the specific species names are taken from my past list from 2013 (for example, I saw the squirrel monkeys in the Children's Zoo and am assuming they were still Peruvian Black-capped Squirrel Monkey).
