(something for a superhero concept, he uses the facility as a basecamp and works as a zookeeper in his regular life. it's also set in the DC universe, so expect some references. Also, in this universe, Pleistocene megafauna survived into the present day! so don't be surprised by some of the collection!)(Based heavily upon the ABQ Biopark and the Audubon Institute.) A Zoo, Aquarium, Insectarium, Botanical Garden, and Superhero basecamp, all in a 1-mile property located in Hamo City, Kentucky! Big Backyard takes you through the amazing world in your own backyard and beyond! with over 700 animal species (Probably gonna be more than that), 1,000 plant species (again, probably gonna be more), representing multiple North American habitats, this facility is one of the most diverse in the states! Housing animals from moths to mammoths, and plants from sage to sequoias! Also home to the basecamp to the famed hero of man and nature, Fauna!
