(Denver, Colo., July 12, 2004) Animals at the Denver Zoo's Predator Ridge. Kruger, a male lion, rests by a log in the lion exhibit, which is next to wild dog exhibit. They are separated by a moat with a fence, as well as "hot grass," which is a short electric fence to ensure that the two species don't mix, but they are close enough so that the different species can see and smell each other. The wild dogs are rotated with hyenas in their exhibit on a schedule that depends on crowds and comfort level of the animals. The hyenas are more timid than the dogs, and are not out in public as often until they get more comfortable with their new surroundings. Eventually, the zoo wants to rotate the lions and the dogs around as well. (Photo by ELLEN JASKOL/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
