Version 5 of the API is currently under development.  On 2/15/18, we released an alpha developer preview of API v5. This is a very early release involving only the Animals endpoint.


This API will change in the coming months.  We would greatly appreciate your feedback and ideas for improvement.  However, perform development at your own risk.  We would expect changes to be relatively minor, but there's no guarantee.
