I visited Fresno Chaffee Zoo last summer for the first time. I’ve been to the much bigger San Diego Zoo, but much to my surprise, the smaller Fresno Zoo did not feel underwhelming. The land on which it sits felt diverse and expansive, more so due to its open concept, in which most of the animals aren’t behind an obvious barrier. With all the fun I’ve had there, I was surprised that there’s more to come: Kingdoms of Asia, whose construction I witnessed.
This exhibit will feature new animals, such as sloth bears, Asian small-clawed otters, and Malayan tigers. Their video will detail all that is to come as a part of the new exhibit.
