As Dublin Zoo makes the transition from bars and cages to state-of-the-art animal habitats it is appropriate to record its story so far. Beginning in 1831, stories of animals and visitors are interwoven to record magical moments as visitors experienced the smells, sounds, behaviors, and magic of exotic animals. The mixed fortunes of the zoo are traced as it survived the famine years, political trouble, economic hardship, and public discomfort with wild animals kept in cages.
