A Review of the Copenhagen Zoo

You know what I hate about the Copenhagen Zoo? Nothing, it was a delightful experience.

Exhibit Size
I always felt like I was spoiled with zoos and museums growing up, having access to the Houston Zoo and the Houston Museum of Natural History. Obviously they’ll be outclassed by the San Diego Zoo and the Smithsonian, but I wasn’t expecting the Copenhagen Zoo to be any better than Houston’s. Heck, I was expecting a repeat of the Central Park Zoo, which I remember having very small enclosures (it’s in the middle of a city) and even inaccurate informational posters.

But even though the Copenhagen Zoo is in Denmark’s capital, the exhibits were absolutely enormous. The Zoo only has 27 acres of land (compared to Houston’s 55 and San Diego’s 100), but the enclosures for any given animal seemed about three times the size of Houston’s. No animals were pacing except for the wolves (granted, it’s difficult to give wolves enough space). The polar bear had five separate enclosures, not including the water sections. Even the tiny red panda and Capuchins had two different exhibits they could walk between, using mesh tubes that spanned overhead. And the elephants? Jesus Christ. Not only did they have the usual large outdoor sandlot, but they also had three separate indoor enclosures (though one was exclusively for the bull elephant). 

And it really seemed to show. The animals all seemed a lot happier and more active — not to mention fertile, as there was hardly an exhibit without babies. The macaques, elephants, giraffes, hippos, Capuchins, and bears all had offspring following them around.  … More A Review of the Copenhagen Zoo

WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition by Eduweb (2019)

You start off the game as a 2-year-old wolf in Yellowstone Park who has left their natal pack to carve out a living away from the nest. Your primary goal is to survive by hunting prey and avoiding competitor species such as bears, mountain lions, and the enormous wolf packs that hold territory around you. 
The hunts are thrilling, all the competitors and potential mates are engaging, and it’s honestly just cool to zoom around with the speed of a greyhound (when in real life I can barely climb the stairs without feeling winded). … More WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition by Eduweb (2019)
