    I've seen some of these:
    Northern white rhino, Masai giraffe and giant armadillo (London)
    Sumatran rhino (Port Lympne, Bronx)
    Philippine eagle (Planckendael)
    Giant sable antelope, mountain tapir (Los Angeles)

    I would like to see many of the animals in these lists, but I doubt if I'll ever see some of them.

    @ Kakapo :

    I am not sure, whether the extinction of the Kouprey is 100 % proved... The hope is the last to die !

    @ Dassie rat :

    Did you really saw Hippotragus niger variani at LA Zoo ? I never knew, that there where any of them shown outside of their natural Habitat in Angola...

    By the way, I forgot to mention two additional antelopes, the Giant Eland and the Tchiru

    @DassieRat, also London has never held Masai Giraffe according to ztl.

    What's a "Tchiru"? Tibetan Antelope?

    I saw the giraffe a few decades ago and it had the leaf-like markings typical of a Masai giraffe. Giraffe taxonomy has changed a lot since then. While I rely a lot on Zootierliste, it isn't perfect and there are zoos I've visited that had animals not listed in Zootyierliste.

    Miami also has (from your lists): Black Duiker, Owl Monkey, Lowland Nyala, Gerenuk, Banteng, and Lowland Anoa.

    If you are coming to Florida, also check out Disney's Animal Kingdom and Lion Country Safari. They are within driving distance and have more of the hoofstock on your list.

    Driving to DAK from Miami is about a three and a half hour drive, though, and if one were to do both I would suggest staying in Orlando overnight and visiting the park on a different day to driving up.

    I think that none zoo in the world keep this species yet, I'm right? For me is a shame as is one of my most wished ungulate species of the world.

    You are correct. Apart from maybe some rescue centers or zoos within their native range, there are currently no Zebra Duiker in captivity.

    Didn't the LA zoo hold zebra duikers at one point and do you know if Animal Kingdom still holds blackbucks as they are on my list too. I thought they still had them with banteng and Eld's deer?
