Just six more days until Cat Canyon opens! Zoo Members will get a sneak preview on Members Night this Friday. The exhibit is looking great, and the cats have been out exploring their new yards. Now that the structures are in place and the landscaping is pretty much finished, Graphics has begun installing the signage. We’re also finalizing the soundtrack and tweaking the sound levels. Listen for tiger roars, tokay gecko calls, and gibbon songs.

Kingdom Productions did an amazing job creating a life-size tiger relief sculpture for the Cat Canyon exhibit. Below are some pictures of the installation.
Next, Horticulture will move in and pretty up the space with plants so it looks as if the tiger is peeking out from the vegetation. Come by the exhibit when it opens later this month to get the full effect.

With beautiful weather like today, the construction crew down at Cat Canyon is busy. The snow leopard and tiger enclosures are really starting to take shape and the tiger viewing shelter is going up. Most of the public paths have been paved and the footers are in for the tiger sculpture and an artificial tree sporting claw marks. Horticulture has started bringing in plants and getting ready to landscape. Next week the sound system and speakers will go in and we’ll start planning where to pipe in the tiger roars and such. Our signs are still in production, which is fine because they are usually the last elements to be installed. See how the exhibit construction is coming along for yourself in Thane’s latest video.
