It's All Happening at the Zoo: Giants of Savanna Breaks out the Hard Hat
Zoo officials, who gave media a sneak peek yesterday, want zoo-goers to think of this as a wild-safari adventure in the shadow of downtown. More than that, though, it's intended as a tourist attraction: Officials like to tout the involvement of top horticulturists, wildlife specialists and zoologists.
None of that, of course, will endear the Dallas Zoo to the friends of Jenny; we've already received a handful of letters from elephant lovers complaining about the addition of two new elephants to what they claim is still a woefully inadequate space.
The exhibit is set to open Memorial Day weekend. See more photos from the advance tour here.
