    Thanks to the renovated aquarium, new pheasantry, play area, and a few new species, Toledo achieved record attendance of over 1.3 million.

    I apologize if I am repeating someone but I went to the zoo today and noticed, one, the aquarium is closed until the 13th, and two, that a bear symbol appeared on the Tembo Trail map, I was doing research and apparently Grizzly Bears are replacing the white lions. The Yaks that are supposed to go into the Valley exhibit (former cheetah habitat) are also in the Tembo Trail where the camels usually are. Right now the Valley contains reindeer.

    I found this accidentally. Not gray seal info, but grizzly and Kodiak bears.
