I went to the SF Zoo yesterday so I have some zoo news (I'm sorry if some of this stuff has already been said): The zoo has completely gotten rid of its monkey cages to make way for the Madagascar exhibit: Construction for new Madagascar exhibit | ZooChat The François’ langurs (Trachypithecus francoisi) now live in four small cages by the "Patas Lawn": New François' langur exhibits | ZooChat. I'm not a huge fan of the design or size but they're certainly functional as the monkeys ran around the two they had access using all of the climbing structures "Komodo Alley" is now "California Conservation Corridor" and includes three terrariums: one housing a San Francisco garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia) and a species of damselfly (I can't remember the species), one containing many California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii) (California red-legged frogs | ZooChat), and the last one containing three western pond turtles (Actinemys marmorata). The aviary next to the CCC now contains two large hornbills (I can't remember what species). The southern pudu (Pudu puda) was now where to be found. The capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) where no where to be found. The Prevost's squirrel (Callosciurus prevostii) was no were to be found, however its sign was still up. Speaking of the Prevost's squirrel, the exhibit it is or was now contains a female Spix's guan (Penelope jacquacu), and according to the zoo sign, she is the only individual in North America. The exhibit also contains Australian laughing kookaburras (Dacelo novaeguineae) and South American scarlet ibises (Eudocimus ruber), which I though was an unusual mix.
