The area just outside the nocturnal house at the Taipei Zoo is centered around Asian tropical rainforest animals.
So what is a pygmy hippo doing here? Turns out their exhibit was being renovated when I visited, so they'd been temporarily moved to this area.
A crab-eating mongoose in its hideout.
Two macaque species were exhibited next to each other on "monkey island" style exhibits. This one is a pig-tailed macaque.
And I think here's a crab-eating macaque.
A sacred ibis, which I think is actually from Africa. Didn't see an excuse for this one.
Some Nicobar pigeons.
A Malayan tapir.
The tapir shared its exhibit with muntjac and black swans (the latter are from Australia, not Asia).
A sun bear. The smallest of all living bears, but reportedly quite aggressive.
Some Asian elephants.
A great Indian hornbill. Quite a magnificent theropod.
A tomistoma or false gharial. My first tomistoma! Unlike true gharials, tomistoma are known to prey on fairly large animals, including deer and humans.
