** The various Safari Zones, although they might better qualify as Fantastic Hunting Preserves. The Kanto Safari Zone in the first generation was specifically home to Pokemon based on exotic animals (such as kangaroos or rhinos) that couldn't be found elsewhere, as well as the game's only wild Dragon-types.

** [[BubblegloopSwamp The Great Marsh]] in the Sinnoh games functions much like the Safari Zones. It's an extensive stretch of wetland set aside as a nature/hunting preserve and home to unique Pokémon found nowhere else in the region, such as the giant cobra Arbok, the leaf-winged sauropod dinosaur Tropius and the [[ManEatingPlant human-sized Venus flytrap]] Carnivine.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Supes and Lobo are captured by an alien who keeps a collection of creatures who are the LastOfTheirKind.
** The irony is the alien hires Lobo to capture Superman, the last Kryptonian, before revealing that he wants the last Czarnian as well (as Lobo is the self-made last Cazarnian after he destroyed Czarnia as part of his science project).
** There are also some dinosaurs on the ship.

* ''Literature/KnownSpace'': In the third-party stories Cathouse and Briar Patch, the human main character and his [[CatFolk Kzin]] captors come across a barren planetoid whose craters were closed off by force fields by an unknown alien race (speculated to be the [[HigherTechSpecies Outsiders]]) and filled with the biospheres of different planets from thousands of years in the past, but incompletely -- the vegetation was there, but the animals and people were in temporal stasis and had to be released. They land at the replica of the Kzin homeworld, one of the few places in the galaxy home to sapient Kzin females (the highly macho Kzinti engineered their females to be nonsapient millennia in the past), and the main character later settles in a dome based on ancient Earth, home to mammoths, aurochs and telepathic Neanderthals.
