Visiting a zoo with my daughters 9 and 4, I really don't expect a lot. But I do expect to see animals. Many in this zoo were either missing entirely, or nearly impossible to see because of the design of the exhibit. Not all exhibits...More

I wonder if you are confusing "emaciated" (thin, due to starvation) with "moulting" (winter fur being shed in summer). Really, you need to address your question to the zoo's administration!
