    This is my first attempt at a species list. The Toledo Zoo is massive so I guess I have a go-big-or-go-home mindset. I expect many corrections will be in order.

    I am going to do this in several posts.

    There are a few things I missed: Venomous Snakes in the ProMedica Museum of Natural History had closed as well as the primate building, I ran out of time so was unable to get a species list for the last hallway in the aquarium, I did not enter the barnyard, and I forgot about the waterfowl aviary near the pheasantry and a display for poison dart frogs in the Reptile House (which I sorely regret).

    not seen - signed but not seen
    off-exhibit - signed but explicitly stated as off-exhibit
    other enclosure - rotates with other animals between enclosures in the zone
    no longer held - outdated signs
    absent from my photographs - signed but absent from my photographs so possibly not seen

    And with that,
