    Okay so I am writing down all the mammals omaha zoo has currently. I been on their website a million times and there is not a animal page, yes there is a exhibit page but the exhibit doesn't list most just gives a generalization of the species that are at the zoo. So I decide to write down the ones I found lives there currently I believe by going on their facebook, and checking it out. I am sure I didn't get all of them, but that's why I am coming on here to ask if anyone knows any that are missing from my MAMMAL ONLY list or any errors in this list? I just wanted to do this because Omaha Zoo is my fav zoo in the entire world, and I only been there once and since my last visit they improved alot so I wanted to do this list okay this is what I have:

    short tailed bats (at least) according to this
    Kingdoms of the Night

    but that might be what you have listed as short tailed fruit bats.
    I dunno haven't been to Omaha yet but I have read that they
    had several species in Kingdom of the Night.

    Zoobat Collections (N. America)

    This thread should help with Omaha's bat collection. I suggest reading through the whole thread, the initial post is incomplete and outdated.

    thanks! For that.

    Now onto my next question: Does omaha zoo have black-footed cats?? Or are they just a animal they plan on saving? Cause I saw somewhere that omaha zoo is planning on something on saving black-footed cat, but I can't really find anything on them having any in their collection? I also have a photo of a cat in the desert dome back in 2013 but unsure if its a black-footed cat cause it's curled in a ball and sleeping... here is my photo: I can't tell which cat it is, but mabye someone here can telll if it is a black-fotted cat or if it's a different species? I took this photo back in 2013, so it might of moved I am not sure. Omaha zoo has so many animals that it's hard finding out their minor animals because they never have the full list on their site T-T. Sorry for the photo being bad, I was 15-16 when I took this, now I am 20 and gotten much better at photography.

    Omaha has Black-Footed Cats. They also have African Wild Cats, if I remember correctly.

    awesome thanks for answering my question!

    Okay next question what species of otters do they currently have? I know they have African Spotted-neck otter, but last time I went they also had north american river otters too but I am unsure if they still do since they are renovating the area where those otters were in a food court area. I also feel like they have asian small clawed otter but idk if I confused it with another zoo?

    I don't remember North American River Otters, they have Asian Small-Clawed Otters too. They also have Angolan Colobus.

    They've got a population of Red-Backed Bearded Saki.. or some other kind of primate that is uncommon. I don't remember exactly what it is.

    @Jena On my 16 day, 50 zoo trip this summer (Snowleopard's 2018 Road Trip) I have a 6,200 word essay on Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo right near the end of that thread. There is a listing of many of the mammals that I saw that day at the zoo, including a number of bat species within Kingdoms of the Night. That information could help you in your search.

    Anyone been behind the scenes at their facility Lee Simmons Conservation Park? I want to see their herd of Gaur that's the largest in the country.
