Hiya all Just got back from a trip to southern NSW, including a visit to Mogo and Symbio. I really like Mogo zoo, it is small and intimate but with enough variety to make an interesting half day visit. The new part, which includes the savanah and primate islands is great. The savanah is like a smaller version of Weribee, big enough that the grass is now being destroted by the animals but small enough that you can still see them. I'm no good at jusging distances so can't give you an indication of its size. The residents are currently two ostrich, three zebra, a scimior Oryx and two giraffe. they have recently received a femalegiraffe from melbourne, not sure one of the two calves thoughg. This gives Mogo a pair of Rothschilds! (some of you will know my passion for them) The cimps outdoor exhibit is about half finished and looks like it will be quite good with a major hill in the middle which the animals canm choose to be out of sight of humans. There are three wild dogs as well as the brazilian tapirs, plus Timbavati, the exhibit for the white lions. Primate islands involves about six islands which are wooded, plus have ropes and things. The monkeys can escape from view but generally don't shoose to do so from my vuewing. There are spider monkeys, siamangs, ring tailed lemurs, the fluffy black and white lemurs and lar gibbons. The older section of the zoo needs some real work done to it. It is a discrace really and just about all of it should be pulled down and rebuilt. I did NOT like the concrete and iron cages for the de Brazzas. There seemed to be only one snow leopard and no where really for three others. Does any one know if the zoos last cubs have been moved? The snow leopards exhibit wass awful! I really hope that the zoos plans on redoing this section before adding anything new. There are 5 servals BTW so many! I don't knopw how much further they can expand. To get to the primate islands you need to walk the whole length of the property and then to get back to the exit, retrace your steps the entire way. They need to have an exit from the primate islands section. This is especially important if you are unable to walk great distances in any way (old, wheelchair, prams, small children) I have some pctures which I will post soon.
