    Talk about animals that are arriving or departing at The National Zoo.

    I don't know how well a three thread system would work with this zoo.

    This thread specifically probably wont work because the zoo rarely makes announcements about animals that are leaving/coming. I don't think the zoo has said anywhere that the giant anteaters were sent to another zoo, the black and white ruffed lemurs arrived at the zoo in late 2015 and I don't believe the website (or their facebook or twitters) mentioned them anywhere until the new website was launched until late 2016.

    Perhaps this thread could be changed to Births, Deaths, and Transfers? Then we've got a more options to discuss.

    Agreed, I guess we can try a births/deaths/transfers thread and a developments thread, like Toronto. That would mean both threads would have to be renamed and put in the proper category, but it's worth a try. However, where would miscellaneous info (such as the bobcat that just escaped, or something about an event the zoo's having) go? I'm guessing developments but just want to clarify.

    Also, I want to apologize to @Drew730: I think I came out a bit harsher than I meant to be in my post on that other thread.

    Oh dear... perhaps we will need to create a thread about how many threads we should create :p
