    Not sure why I chose the specific species I did, but since this post I have seen African Forest Buffalo, Visayan Spotted Deer, Tasmanian Devil, Australian Brush-Turkey, and Tasmanian Devil. I hope to cross out at least a few more within the upcoming year.

    Since these posts, I have seen one more species listed on both Dassie Rat’s and my own list: gelada.

    From my own list, I have also now seen the following:
    Honey badger
    Lots of birds (I’ve seen a lot of new ones, not sure exactly which I had in mind though)
    Siberian musk deer
    Kihansi spray toad
    Lots of other frogs (same as above applies)
    Bear cuscus
    Mauritius pink pigeon

    In addition, I’ve gotten a more recent look at the douc langur at Philadelphia.

    As for species I want to see, I have plans to see marine iguana next year, and that’s one that’s been on my list for a while as well. I’d like to see proboscis monkeys and platypus, like many others. Anything new is appreciated, though.

    Nice to see how my last post resurrected this old lovely thread! It's one of my favourite threads of the forum :)

    That implies that you never visited a zoo before ;-) as the list consist in animals that you didn't saw previously in a zoo (and that you wish to see)

    Which zoo(s) keep(s)...
    (looks like that maybe some Asian zoo still keeps the nominate tiger subspecies).

    Devilfish's year of adventures

    Do you mean a travel to Galapagos, right? Because the only ones held in captivity in the world (in Japan) has been moved very recently to an unknown facility.

    And well, after I put yesterday the list of species that I can remove from my older list because I saw them in the various zoos I visited in last three years... now I put the species that I really would want a loooot to find in a zoo (in a much shorter list than the previous one!):

    (I don't know if deep sea sponges Chondrocladia lampadiglobus and Chondrocladia lyra are possible to keep in an aquarium. Almost sure, nobody tried. But since the rise of deep sea creatures (overall in Japan), maybe these species can be finally included as potential "zoo animals" too... and then, very much in my wishlist!)

    So this is all. I hope that maybe in next years I also will be able to shut down some of the species of this list, hehe :)

    That reptile zoo mentioned on Zoochat previously isn't the only one keeping marine iguanas in Japan. I reported it at the time and it was confirmed that there are a number of Japanese "collections" known to have them and all of them are illegal.

    Oh!!! I believed that it was the only one. All these other facilities are private or public? Are they visitable and one can take photos?

    Dassie rat, I want to be you :p you were soooo privileged for see the last rockfowl at Frankfurt and the Mauritius kestrels at Chester! And to have enough money to travel to Philippines and visit the eagle breeding center :) Hellbenders are more common at American facilities I suppose. Paddlefish and guitarfish are the less rare of these list, and probably I will see them some day. Bowfin are rising in european zoos :) But, where on Earth did you saw an Astrapia???? Al Wabra? Jurong?

    I imagine that he saw Stephanie's Astrapia at either London or Chester - both of which kept the species throughout the latter part of the 1960s. These two collections also held Ribbon-tailed Astrapia at roughly the same time.

    I didn't born yet by this time :-( :-( being older is a great advantage in terms of seeing zoo rarities!

    So many creatures i've not heard of in this thread, that I now want to see :)
    This year though, I have been trying to get photos of as many mammals in the Threatened categories as I can, that are listed on Zootierliste. I was happy to get the majority of the UK specimens, but am far short of seeing many others in Europe. Reading a couple of comments from USA has me wondering what I can see there that we wouldn't see in Europe and the same for what Australia has to offer.

    Australian zoos don't have anything worth seeing, unless you think things like numbats and long-beaked echidnas and quokkas are interesting.

    Thanks Kakapo. That must be one of the biggest compliments I've ever had. I don't think I've ever had anyone wanting to be me before, even though I'm not the king of the swingers. I saw grey-necked and white-necked rockfowl at Frankfurt and white-necked rockfowl at Frankfurt. I saw the Philippine eagle at Planckendael, the Mauritius kestrel at Chester and Jersey, the bowmouth guitarfish at Birmingham Sea Life Centre and the Princess Stephanie's astrapia, paddlefish, and probably the bowfin, at London. When I was younger, I didn't think I'd ever see an aye-aye, a naked mole rat or a tamandua, so there are probably species you will see after Fogeya senecta becomes extinct.

    Ougghhhh! Are you telling me that really once was a Philippine eagle in a zoo outside Philippines? Well, the compliment that I actually wanted to tell is "I want to be into your skin", but this is the litteral translation of the Spanish saying, and I don't know if it's correct in English. Anyway, what I wish is to have seen so many superdreamed species (camera in hand, of course!) as you.

    And, if I order my mammal list in most wished first order, numbat also would be one of the five first probably (maybe only saola and some cetaceans would be first). ;-) Like the regent bowerbirds and spinifex pigeons at Taronga.... Of course these can be more normal animals for an Australian or New Zealander like Chli, but for an European, they're an impossible dream. Probably the contrary thing not happen as we fulfilled New Zealand with tons of European invasive species... (and many Australian and Asian exotics too)

    There have been a few Philippine Eagles outside of the Philippines I believe.

    Indeed there have but it has always been scarce in zoos; the first specimen outside the Philippines was acquired by London Zoo in 1909.

    I saw a monkey-eating eagle (the name I always use for the species) regularly at London Zoo when I was a child in the 1960s.

    I have also seen the species in Plankendael, Antwerp and Los Angeles. Sadly I doubt I'll ever see another one.

    Regarding the Philippine (Monkey-eating) Eagles, Wikipedia says:

    Historically, about 50 Philippine eagles have been kept in zoos in Europe (England, Germany, Belgium, Italy and France), the United States, and Japan. The first was a female that arrived in London Zoo in August 1909 and died there in February 1910. The majority arrived in zoos between 1947 and 1965. The last outside the Philippines died in 1988 in the Antwerp Zoo, where it had lived since 1964 (except for a period at the Planckendael Zoo in Belgium).


    Their reference is:
    Weigl, R, & Jones, M. L. (2000). The Philippine Eagle in captivity outside the Philippines, 1909–1988. International Zoo News vol. 47/8 (305)

    And that article is actually available online as well:
    International Zoo News Vol. 47/8 (No. 305)
