The zoo is a place where various animals are kept to prevent them from extinction and also for people to have a view of what they look like.
However, some animals can hardly be found at the zoo. Some of them have unique features that would not make than thrive under human care. Here are some of those animals:
1. Mountain gorilla
According to the International Gorilla Conservation Programme, attempts were made during the 1960s and 1970s to capture endangered mountain gorillas and breed them. However, it's not clear why mountain gorillas don't survive in captivity, while lowland gorillas have.
2. Giant squid
The largest giant squid scientists have found weighed almost a ton.
"Because the ocean is vast and giant squid live deep underwater, they remain elusive and are rarely seen," the Smithsonian reports.
According to the Smithsonian;
"Unlike other whales, narwhals, which can live more than 100 years, die shortly in captivity, greatly reducing the opportunity to study them."
Other animals which can hardly be found in the zoo include Saola, Great white shark, and swallow.
