*The Hagenbeck family consisted of Carl and Wilhelm who initially both managed their own circus. Carl (Sr.) later became particularly known as the founder of the modern day zoos with more natural enclosures for the animals, but also for the 'human zoos' exhibiting 'purely natural' populations such as the Nubians.
