    As someone who likes to have an idea of what collections hold what species Zootierliste is a great companion to have but unfortunately over the last few months I have visited the website and looked at some collections lists and found them to be out dated (through no fault of the organisers of the website) so here I would like to start to see which collections hold which species and to see if anyone from Zootierliste or has access to the site would like to update the information of the UK collections.

    As a community of zoo lovers I think this would be great to help others with a complete updated list of is held by which collection

    First port of call will be the Small collection at the formally known collection Birmingham Nature Centre here follows the current list of species held by the collection according to Zootierliste

    If anyone can help by pointing out which species have left the collection and if there are any additions this may help other people in the future.

    Will be updating this thread every week with a new collection or two if they are small collections

    This list is accurate and is one of a number of collections for which I actively maintain the listings to ensure they are accurate and up-to-date :)

    Removed the Boa earlier tonight - Adrian must have copied the list prior to the edit. Have edited his list to keep it accurate.

    Will do the same for the pure wallaby listing once I have made the edit to ZTL.

    Are the Common Barn Owls off show along with the European Barn Owls and the Ring tailed Coati's as I was under the impression they where to leave the collection earlier this year or it could have been me misunderstanding something said.

    They only have Common Barn Owls,its another case of people guessing at what a place has,and the same species being added twice!

    The Barn Owls where on-show a couple of weeks ago!

    Come to think a bout it I think the Coati have left the collection,they certainly aren't off-show,and I cannot remember seeing them on-show!

    Unfortunately no takers on the Drusillas park zoo & Exmoor Falconry & animal farm lists so I take it no one goes there then.

    Serval went to Marwell a couple of months ago. The primates held on the old cat terraces are all due to leave soon, if not already.
    One of the problems with zootierliste is that it lists what a place holds, not what a visitor can see. Several on this list are offshow, the most obvious to me being the Aye Aye & gentle lemurs, anyone expecting to see them in the last few years would be disappointed!

    ...though anything offshow is usually noted as such (albeit in German, which is a complicating factor - 'Hinter den Kulissen' are the words of doom to look for!).

    @adrian, Your list is much easier to read and follow than the zootierlist one, as it is alphabetical.
    Well done with this and glad to hear your feeling better. Did you type all these names out, as this would be a gargantuan task.

    Although Zootierlist is a great asset/benefit, the bigger zoo collection lists are hard to follow, as they are neither alphabetically done or separated into mammal, bird etc. and have huge numbers of (Petshop type) tropical fish such as tetras and corydoras.
    Also, based on the Dublin zoo listing there are major inaccuracies such as,
    Pygmy Hippo (never held.)
    Jaguar. (gone 10 years at least)
    African Lion. ( long gone)
    Arctic fox. (long gone)

    Actually Dublin Zoo was the first zoo in the world to have a pygmy hippo back in 1873.

    The animal only lived a short while but Zootierliste is perfectly accurate to show that there was a pygmy hippo at Dublin; it is also correctly listed under former holding, not current holding.

    In fact, all those species are listed as former holdings.

    It *is* the ZTL list, as zootierliste does list species alphabetically!

    could I ask just to put a link to the Zootierliste list, instead of cutting and pasting the entire thing into a ridiculously long post? It would make much more sense.

    will do in future and I have to copy & paste the list and then put it in to alphabetical order as the zootierliste is not in alphabetical order well the UK part isn't
