    - You may choose it to be wherever you like (even make up a place) and whatever you like (zoo, aquarium etc.).

    P.E.T.A. ZOO
    Because it would make their heads explode.

    It would include the Blackfish Cetacean Show

    I don't know for sure
    Maybe: Zoo of Nikola, Prilep zoo (Prilep my birth and living town who in the past had a zoo, even with giraffes, elephants, rhinos and chimpanzees - in 1970s and early 1980s), Olive zoo,

    I liked P.E.T.A on facebook, but I did not like when they criticise zoos, those who provide good living conditions for zoo animals; they should focus their energy on criticising bad zoos, and more importantly, circuses, and people abonding/abusing their pets/animals, and of corse, the hunters for trophies, poachers etc.

    Most likely, I'd name it based on the location of the zoo (like, [Town's name] Zoological Park and Gardens), but I might just name it based on the region, or even be greedy and name it after myself :p

    ...I'd probably just call it the Galveston Zoo, though, since that's where I plan on opening it (Galveston's an island right off the coast of Texas)

    Aquarium - Vegas Underwater World

    You get bonus points if all of the cetaceans in the show are species that get grouped under "blackfish". Not just orcas, but false killer whales, pygmy killer whales, etc.

    Just out of curiosity, as this is a naming thread, are there specific names for a place that specializes in reptiles or amphibians? I know for a place that specializes in snakes, it would be a serpentarium, but beyond that, what would it be?

    I have a name that I have had in mind for a while, but I do not want to post it just in case I decide to actually do something with it some day. I don't want anyone to steal it!

    For just broad range reptiles/amphibians, it would be a herpetarium.

    Thanks. I thought so but wanted to check, in case there was something more specific.

    I've designed multiple fantasy zoos. One I've been working on is for an aquarium that would be on the Texas coast, perhaps South Padre Island. Name I've been using is the Texas Marine Science Center.
