So I just acquired a Venezuelan 2 bolivares which features armadillos on the reverse which set me thinking...how many animals feature on the banknotes in my collection? 94! From aardvarks to zebras. I didn't include stylized or creatures that appear on coats-of-arms. Many are repeated but then that would help with my breeding program...and the beauty of it all? No having to feed them and no shovelling their poop out!

Maybe not an aviary or aquarium, but I have been helping some boy scout troops and now I have a collection of dog and cat coins and banknotes.
I have been careful to avoid the Chinese coins as there is a flood of counterfeits on the market.

Wonderful Topic. Having visited your zoo I deccided to creare one of my own. I also added an Aquarium for the fish (although most seem to be ready for the plate and not to swim in the zoo) and reptiles as well as an Aviary for the birds.

Not being a Zooologist there are a number of species that I can't identify so I have just x=called them cattle or birds etc.

I have also included dometicated animals - a lot of horses and one or two other.

There are many dupicates but as you say good for breeding.

Mmm, I like the snake on the Aruba note. Personally I'm a sucker for them (which apparently makes me an ophiophilist). The only one I have is the Sri Lankan (green) pit viper on this note. The Sri Lanka Hill Mynas and the Golden Palm Civet are pretty cool too.
