    Two questions about Zoom Torino:
    1) Are there any major additional plans for expansion at this zoo?
    2) What are the dates that Boulder Beach is open?

    In Zoom Torino were born 4 otters, not 2

    1) Zoom Torino should open a new little "zoo" near the centre of Torino the next year
    There will be like three thematic farms and an Indoor area (divided in China and South America), it should be built where there was the old Zoo di Torino
    Then as I knew there were plans to keep building new areas, but I don't know anything about those plans
    2) It is opened since June till September

    Torino asked to someone to make that zone better than what it is now and Zoom Torino has been the only one to present a project, but I don't know which are the reasons

    Three years ago I asked if there were new plans, they told me they were planning to make a South American indoor area (Zoom Torino is divided in Asia and Africa, probably they want to keep these 2 different areas)
    And yes Zoom has a lot of space around it, but most of it are fields
