    No, at the time William Randolph Hearst had the world’s largest private zoo, but it was not larger  than many public zoos.  His zoo, the Hearst Zoo, was located on his Hearst Castle property.  It was established in 1923 and held over 300 animals.  Public zoos existed at this time that were much larger.  For example, the Berlin Zoo opened in 1844, and by the time of the Hearst Zoo it already held over 3,000 animals from over 1,000 different species.  Today the Berlin Zoo holds the title to the most specie-diverse zoo in the world.
