    Gaining inspiration from the Striped and Spotted Zoo and Black and White Zoo threads in Fantasy Zoos, plus the fact that it's St. Patrick's Day, I propose a zoo for green-colored animals. Off the top of my head, I can think of...
    Green Iguana
    Emerald Tree Boa
    Green and Black Poison Dart Frog
    Green Anole
    Green Sea Turtle
    Waxy Monkey Frog
    White's Treefrog
    Giant Treefrog
    American Bullfrog
    Red-Eyed Treefrog
    Green Basilisk
    Green Tree Python
    Green Anaconda
    Eclectus Parrot (Male)
    Military Macaw
    Green Acouchi
    Please post any others you know of!
