But what happened
to the Wild Dogs?

{short description of image}

Zoos are not static. As in the wild, animals get born and animals die. In addition, animals may go out or come into the zoo on breeding loan to maximize genetic diversity. As numbers of a zoo population increase, the group may be moved into exhibit space formerly occupied by another species. Other animals may be moved temporarily off exhibit as exhibit space is renovated. Or a group of animals may be moved to another facility to make room for another that supports the zoo's conservation efforts or other aspects of its mission.

For these reasons you may find that some animals described at WhoZoo may no longer be seen at the Fort Worth Zoo. We will keep these species in the WhoZoo data base to serve as an informational resource, but will attempt to stay current in noting which animals are not on exhibit.
