The Philadelphia Zoo - African Plains

A cheetah, African painted dogs (otherwise known as African wild dogs), giraffes, warthogs, zebras, sable antelope, gazelles, crowned cranes, storks, and secretary birds live together peacefully here (with just a few strategically placed barriers to keep those who might want to eat some of the others from doing so.)

Where are the lions, you ask? They are in the Carnivora House, or, most likely in their territory outside the Carnivora House.
