Okay, okay, I'm going to stop right there because I am terrible at making jokes or executing punchlines. What is this all about then? Well, at the end of November I visited some German and Dutch zoos for work-related reasons. Even before I came back, I already knew that I have to make a trip like that again as soon as possible. I and my friends, who'll be coming with me have already thought about some possible destinations in different countries and now our sight is set on Germany with its enormous number of zoos. Thread about 50-must-see zoos by @lintworm is a great starting point but I thought it would be nice to obtain as much info/tips/advice as possible. Also, I intend to make a report from this journey so I decided to make my own thread. All of us going are working as a zookeeper in some Czech zoo on a part-time/volunteering basis and we want to make it a sort of "each of their own" kind of trip so basically, we want to visit some zoos that have interesting collections of animals we are working with. So which German zoos should a primate-keeper, bird-keeper and small-mammals/hoofstock keeper not miss? We are aiming to 5-7 days long trip at the end of January/beginning of February so some zoos that aren't severely inhibited by winter weather would be nice as well. Also, we'll be going most probably by car so distance is not an issue. Thank's in advance.
