Sometime in the near future, red pandas and more will be featured in a new exhibit at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, according to a master plan project released back in 2010.
The newest project is called Asian Highlands. The cost is expected to be around $20 million.
At around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, zoo officials released more information on the latest attraction that will encompass an 8-acre site of undeveloped land inside the zoo.
Based on the master plan project, the exhibit will wind through an existing undeveloped forest and hillside featuring the zoo's tiger collection.
3 News Now also learned other featured species include sloth bear, tufted deer and birds found throughout the Asian continent.
The zoo plans to add a food and gift section nearby.
Portions of Asian Highlands are expected to open in 2018 and 2019.
