    When you do your take-offs it might make sense to only include areas the animals have access to if you goal is comparisons.
    I have compared some entries to the actual sizes of the exhibits (based on construction plans) and there are huge discrepancies. I assume that you are including moats, etc. that animals are prevented from going into.
    So when comparing one lion exhibit to another, for example, you may not really be comparing "apples to apples"

    I actually tried as best as I could to not include moats.

    I did this for every single US Lion exhibit and I only included moats if the animals had access to them.
