The one in Planckendael.
My short list
3. River Dolphin
4. Burrowing Owl
5. Emperor Penguin
8. Eastern Lowland Gorilla
9. Malagasy Civet
12. Bat Eared Fox
I just noticed how many of these I would see if I went to San Diego. Need to find a way to get there
Here are some I can think of for the moment:
1. Greater Adjutant Stork (Safari World Bangkok)
2. Jabiru Stork (Dallas World Aquarium)
3. Milky Stork (Freeport McMoRan Audubon Species Survival Center)
4. Siberian Crane (Franklin Park Zoo)
5. Gelada Baboon (Bronx Zoo)
6. Owl Faced Monkey (Zoo Leipzig)
7. Steller Sea Lion (Vancouver Aquarium)
Wow there are a lot of cool storks I've never heard of.
Are they still there? Is it opened to public ?
I have no idea.
Yup! They're the best! (I'm biased)
The only ones I haven't seen out of all of those are the Snub nosed monkey, Somali wild ass, Ibex and Saiga. I've seen dholes but not the Chinese subspecies.
Others that I wish I'd seen
The US Dholes are still Chinese Dholes.
Only a couple of species come to mind.
Duck billed platypus
African golden cat
Flat headed cat
Any of the snub nosed monkey species
I don't want to keep this list too exhaustive, but some noteworthy species:
Lac Alaotra gentle lemur
Giant bamboo lemur
Asiatic golden cat
Kiwi (Nemesis species)
Thick-billed parrot (I don't think I've seen them in person)
Superb bird of paradise
Red bird of paradise
Pilbara rock monitor
Hellbender (Another nemesis species)
Texas blind salamander
Sri Lankan Leopards
Purebred Giraffes, any species
Red River Hog
Warthog, any species
Purebred Tigers, any subspecies except Bengal
This just scratches the surface...
-Western blue duiker
-Giant forest hog (I think that a Ugandan zoo still keeps them.)
-Visayan warty pig
-Bornean bearded pig
-Rocky mountain goat
-Siberian musk deer
-African pygmy goose
-African pygmy falcon
-Many many many more...
When you read this shortly after reading @lintworm's taxonomy thread
What can I say, I'm just a big ungulate fan
- Asiatic Black Bear
- Maned Wolf
- Red-Shanked Douc Langur
- Dusky Pademelon
- Bear Cuscus
Not sure where in Wisconsin you are at, but Manitowoc's Lincoln Park Zoo in Wisconsin has one.
Yep, one of the last ones in the country. The others will be much harder.
