    There are many threads where you gives a riddle about a zoo, and someone answers it, and then they give a riddle. This is like that, but talks about comparing the zoo from when it first opened to now. For example the first question is...

    When this US zoo first opened it had only American Black Bears. Now it has Kodiak Bears, a drive-through zoo, and MANY birds of prey.

    (NOTE: Every riddle has to start with something along the lines of " When this zoo first opened".)

    Yes. Your turn.


    This is a pretty obscure zoo. How did you guess it.

    I’m not sure if it was against the rules but I looked up Kodak bears in zoos and I found it. Sorry if I’m cheating or anything.

    When this US zoo opened, it had many ABC species but now the amount of animals is lowered drastically but the zoo now houses one of the only bush dogs in the area.

    Just to list all the facts together...

    The zoo used to have many ABC species but now has a smaller amount of animals.
    They have the only Bush dogs in the area
    The zoo was the first to be opened in the state

    and just for fun I'll give one more hint by quoting a little song sang in the schools in this state...

    "GO WEST"!

    so proud


    When this US zoo first opened, it was an expansion of a small natural history museum, becoming a small childrens zoo, now, this zoo is now bigger, and is a modern and flourishing zoo.
