    If you were to have a large walk-in aviary/greenhouse (think Leipzig Zoo's Gondwanaland) and populate it with Southeast Asian rainforest flora and fauna, everything free-ranging and co-habiting

    This should be quite expensive project.

    If the financial resources are limited, I would start with fewer species (like: Malayan tiger, binturong, Javan lutung, southern white-checked gibbon, Sumatran Prevost's squerrel, Red-knobbed hornbill, some parrots, Bali myna, Asian fairly-blue bird, strom stork!, etc., reptiles king cobra, Indochinese spitting cobra, several turtles, Brongersman's blood python, Bornean pitviper, Philipine habu, Siamese crocodile, Savu island python, and many frogs ans several arthropodes.)

    But from veterinary point of view, mixed species enclosures, big aviaries, or walk-trough enclosures, crowded ponds, are not favourable (eg. inter-taxa transsmision of different microorganisms, difficult eradication of a disease once appeared (introduced) in the mixed collection, introductions of new patogenic microorganisms bu visitors (primarly on foots), etc.)
