By 'Unusual animals' I mean ones uncommon in UK zoos, not necessarily rare. A deliberately broad subject so any species at any zoo is valid here without having to start a new thread. For starters; Bongorob- when you last visited Flamingo Park, did you see a small herd of Wapiti still there? I believe they may be, or are descended from the ones that used to be at Chester. I don't know any other uk zoos that keep them nowadays (whipsnade used to) except perhaps on the odd deer farm. secondly- Mangabey Monkeys were at one time common in Uk zoos,then almost died out. Now they are returning. I know of them at the following; Flamingo Pk. White-naped. 1.1 +1 Dublin. Whitenaped. was 3.2 +? london. White-naped. new additions. number? Colchester. Cherry Crowned. about nine animals inc. offspring bred there Port Lymne. Golden Bellied. 1.1. Penscynor in Wales at one time held a number of Sooty Mangabeys which I think came from ZSL(inc. some born at Chester) When Penscynor closed, these Sooty Mangabeys 'disappeared' from view. Location?
