Playing Favourites in South America

Ask zoo visitors about their favourite animals and elephants, giraffes and gorillas are almost guaranteed to come out ahead of flamingos, piranhas and anteaters. But Dr. Malu Celli, curator at the zoo, thinks that these and several other incredible South American species get the short end of the stick when it comes to visitor attention.  [Please note that the South America building had to be demolished after the June 2013 flood and most of its animals were relocated to other accredited Canadian zoos.]
