    I wish I could find something good to say about Semarang Zoo but I cannot other than saying that it is a little better than Baturraden Zoo. The most 'interesting' fact about this collection was that it had literally just moved to the site at the time of my visit and yet was already dropping to bits. Semarang zoo has moved location three times since 1985 to its present site at Mangkang where it is also known as the Mangkang Zoo.

    Is this the longest gap between the 1st and 2nd comments on a zoo?

    Probably, I didn't notice it until you point it out.

    I am happy to see our Indonesian Zoochat forumsters like @Nandito are adding value to this thread and posting news items.

    I would very much appreciate to see more zoo news streaming.

    Semarang Zoo seems to be interested in acquiring dolphins, most definitely the Indo-Pacific bottlenose.

    Semarang Zoo received some birds from MAS Arya Indonesia, a apparel manufacturing company. These birds include: Color-variation of green-cheeked parakeets, black-winged starling, and black-naped orioles.

    Additionally, MAS Arya Indonesia donated some animal feed, like sunflower seeds, to the zoo.
