Kate (kathrynlouwca) There is no number we are trying to reach on this particular task. Let's just see how big of a zoo we can create. Every animal counts so some "exhibits" might be a bit larger than others. But every animal counts. Let's try to get some exotic animals. Also, for the sake of simplicity, we are just going to go for the animal in general. So all dogs count under the dog category. We aren't going to create seperate "exhibits" for golden retrievers as opposed to labradors. You can just say there was a dog in your book. Hope that makes sense.

Animal Exhibits:
Ant - 1
Ape - 1
Badger - 1
Bat - 1
Bear - 2
Birds - 8
Buffalo - 1
Cat - 4
Chicken - 1
Chimpanzee - 1
Cow - 2
Deer - 1
Dinosaur - 1
Dog - 6
Donkey - 1
Elephant - 1
Ermine - 1
Fish - 1
Fly - 1
Fox - 1
Gazelle - 1
Goose - 1
Gorilla - 1
Grasshopper - 1
Hedgehog - 1
Hippo - 1
Horse - 3
Leopard-1
Lion - 1
Monkey - 2
Moth - 1
Moose - 1
Mosquito - 1
Mouse - 1
Mule - 1
Penguin - 1
Pigs - 1
Polar Bears - 1
Rabbits - 3
Rat - 1
Rhino - 2
Tigers - 2
Turtle - 1
Snakes - 1
Snow Leopard - 1
Spiders - 1
Squirrel - 1
Stinkbugs - 1
Wolves - 1
Yak - 1
