Further down the path is the next faux habitat for the rock hyrax. A small rock climbing rodent. the path crosses over a bridge that spans the rocky cliffs on either side where the hyrax would jump and climb.



This would be a fully functional habitat if I placed an animal in there.

The bridge is a nice addition to add a "little extra something" to the exhibit.

next habitat down the pathway is the caracal (yes, another faux habitat that can accept an animal in the game if needed).

This is a medium sized member of the cat family.






Here is another example of the layered scenery and lighting that I did to make the habitat look more natural and deep.



Across from this habitat is a cross-over cut-through to the other (forest) side of the building.

I like the cross-over that connects the two sides. Very user friendly for the guests. I also like how the layered effect turned out in the caracal exhibit. But what are the parallel lines in the blue sky? Or maybe that's just part of the ceiling lit up with blue light?

Here is the interior of the building looking above the finished habitats. You can see there are a few sky lights for some exhibits for during the day.



Here are the fennec fox, or the bat-eared fox in my zoo. again here is the darker exhibit but forced perspective and lighting make it look like a dusk with the sunset in the far distance.

The sunset looks nice. A little variety from the purely nighttime habitats.
