    There are a few here, but remain very expensive (not an easy species to rear in captivity).

    Virgil Bates was able to rear a few last year, his pics are here: http://www.gbwf.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8105

    I can't get onto ISIS any longer to see what zoos they are in, but I'm thinking Bronx has some and possibly Miami?
