Many animals at the zoo live well beyond their median age, Thompson said, noting that the mother of Lucille the seal, Betty, died at 50 as the oldest seal in captivity.

The zoo has not seen any lapses in its accreditation since first receiving it in 1990, nor any animal welfare complaints, save one regarding an elephant 20 years ago that lokasi kebun binatang bandung ultimately went to a sanctuary, said Rob Vernon, a spokesperson for the AZA. Vernon did not respond to questions about whether any animal deaths at the zoo have been reported to the association.
