    What other zoos have the small, rare, nocturnal primate called the potto? And are there any photos of the exhibits?

    I've only ever seen pottos at London Zoo.

    London, I believe, has either 2.1 or 1.2 potto, and I was informed by keepers they have bred relatively recently. Got some nice photos of the pottos during my visit on Sunday, but I suspect that Moebelle only wants US enclosure photos.

    Can anyone confirm this but are the only zoos in the US to have pottos is Franklin Park in Boston, Cincinnati Zoo, Cleveland Zoo, Milwaukee County Zoo and the Duke Lemur Center in North Carolina?

    I don't think the Lemur Center has them.
