    Bronx has advanced and Denver hasn't, but there's still pride to play for. Can Denver depart with another big scalp?

    Australia and Islands.

    I've messed up the title on this one - this group is C2. A correction would be handy when a mod finds the time. :)

    2-1 Bronx. Denver has a few island species, while Bronx has multiple species from each class, plus a Madagascar-oriented exhibit.

    I was actually hoping Bronx would get this one at some point :) Madagascar aside, it's easy to think the zoo severely lacks in this department due to them not having an Australian exhibit but I've found the zoo is surprisingly strong in the islands department. I can do a full list if people require it but as some highlights the zoo keeps Matschie's Tree-Kangaroo, Rodrigues Flying Fox, six lemur species, three bird-of-paradise species, nine monitor species, and nine turtles/tortoises from the relevant regions. The zoo also does extensive conservation work within New Guinea and, of course, Madagascar.
