5 Rare Animals You Will Probably Never See in The ZOO

    1- Javan rhino

    5 rare animals you will probably never see in the zoo
     The Javan rhino is the rarest large mammal on the planet, and none are in captivity, according to the World Wildlife Fund. They’re a shy species used to living in dense tropical forests, which are tough to replicate in captivity, Mizejewski says. There are only about 63 left, and they all live in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park. While they may not encounter these animals, zookeepers see some pretty crazy things on the job.

    4- Great white shark

    Aquariums have tried to keep great white sharks in captivity—with little success. In 2016, a great white shark died after three days in a Japanese aquarium, NPR reported. The shark refused to eat. Great white sharks also like to roam. “We can’t replicate their habitat in a way that they would be able to survive in captivity,” Mizejewski says. Find out more about why great white sharks don’t survive in captivity.


    3- Mountain gorilla

    According to the Gorilla International Conservation Program, many attempts were made in the 1960s and 1970s to capture and breed endangered mountain gorillas. Why mountain gorillas do not survive in captivity, unlike lowland gorillas. "Their dietary needs may be more specific, or they have been affected by stress and have given way to the disease faster," says IGCP.

    2- Pink fairy armadillo

    Native to Argentina, pink fairy armadillos are rarely seen in the wild. When one was captured, any modification to its environment or diet produced a stress response, according to a study. The San Diego Zoo reports that “the pink fairy armadillo rarely lives more than a few years in zoos, so little is known about this species.” For more cool creatures, read about the strangest animal found in every state.


    1- Indri

    An indri is a large lemur found only in Madagascar. According to the New England Primate Conservancy, no one has survived more than a year in captivity: "Research suggests that dietary diet is nuanced (they eat certain foods at certain times of the day) and cannot be reproduced in captivity. Moreover, when taken from nature, do not reproduce these lemurs, for reasons that remain unclear. "
