With my own private zoo, I wouldn't have to worry about what other people think because it's a private zoo!
And on my zoo I'd live... I would have a pool with a somewhat large island in the center. There would be a waterfall and a cave behind it. In the cave the pool water still flows, and the edges of the cave have platform to sit on. The end of the cave is a bar-like area with cool lillypad or stone stools that are slightly above the water. That is my getaway destination. And on the island is all grassy with palm trees. Wild birds, that wind the spring of the world - or coo, call out from the heavens.
That's my private zoo. But that's only beginning!
