    Depends on what "medium size" mean and where it will be located (climatic zone, within a big city or a small town in the middle of nowhere).

    1. African or Asian Elephant
    2. Amurtiger or Lion
    3. Western Lowland Gorilla
    4. Polar Bear
    5. Giraffe
    6. Sealion (or any kind of Fur Seal)
    7. Zebra (any species) or Camel (Bactrian or Dromedary)
    8. Crocodile (any of the larger species)
    9. Big parrot (any Macaw or Kakadu)
    10. Meerkat or Squirrel Monkey
