    I found the statistic that Zoo Boise donates 12% of its operating budget on field conservation compared to the AZA average of 2% quite fascinating.

    @ Ituri - You mentioned in another thread on hyenas (back in 2009) that the zoo was getting striped hyenas. Do they in fact have these animals on exhibit?

    The striped hyenas are still there and I saw two of them in the summer of 2010. They are remarkable animals and I just saw two more last week at Naples Zoo in Florida.

    Boise, like much of the country, is in an unusual cold snap right now. Oddly, much of the rest of the Idaho is at their more usual winter temperatures. Zoo Boise has found themselves discounting admissions and having to bring in animals that are usually hardy to the areas relatively mild winters.
