Starting next month the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens will be breaking ground to start the building of the final phase of Cat Canyon which is due to be open to public in the Summer of 2012. This particular exhibit will replace the current Tiger Canyon where you can see some of the cats like the cheetah, White Bengal Tiger and Malaysian Tiger. Night Hunters will be attached making it one big exhibit to walk through. Along the way Cougars, the newest exhibit to open next week on August 4th to public will have cougars Tecumseh and Joseph, two babies born on September 9, 2010 in their natural habitat splashing around in the pool, climbing rocks and trees as well as playing in waterfalls. There will also be snow leopards. The Cincinnati Zoo is hoping that by creating this exhibit it will help bring awareness to their commitment to conservation of threatened species through not only education but through scientific research of the wild and at the zoo.
