In 2003, the Mann Wildlife Learning Museum was purchased by the Montgomery Area Zoological Society and moved to the Montgomery Zoo. The collection of large animals on display was taken with bow and arrow by trophy hunter George Mann. Guests visiting the Mann Wildlife Learning Museum are able to touch and feel the furs and antlers of some of the animals on display. The animals are in a three-sided displays so you can walk up close and see the animal and their habitat. All the displays are assembled from natural material and actual plants, rocks, trees, small critters, dirt and sand collected from the actual site where displayed animals live its life. Also in the fish room, all kinds of mounted fish are on display; including stingrays, sharks, marlin, blue fin and a killer whale (orca).
