    The Dallas Zoo already has a huge variety of animals and a lot of the more popular animals like elephants and lions but they are missing some good animals. Some animals I think they should add a Black or White Rhinos(preferably white because they could easily mix them in with the elephants and giraffes), Common Hippos and Pygmy Hippos (perfect for the forest area in the Wilds of Africa, and maybe Orangutans mixed with gibbons except they may need to have Primate Place renovated for this to happen.
    If you guys have any other animals feel free to reply
    ~Thanks BossMayhem250

    Pgymy Hippo at WOA.

    White Rhino would be the logical place to eventually expand Giants of the Savannah. As well as at least one bull elephant. After all Giant's sister exhibit Trails at Birmingham is the same concept with those two species, and Dallas is a much bigger zoo.

    I agree the bird collection is rather thin. (Although the bird show is the best I have seen).
