    som general Information about stockholm zoo

    They stand for Education and Conservation of animals and nature and not for entertainment, they focus mostly on European species but with some exceptions for example Amur leopard,the zoo has 140 000 visitors per year,
    the Zoo want visitors to feel if they were inside with the animals exhibits so the zoo is trying to get the fence to look as natural as possible.



    I'm a bit of a newbie in making Fantasy Zoos so that's why my zoos are not as detailed as the other peoples :(



    still hope you like it :)
