Dogs and pets

Always remember that you’re a guest in their home. Don’t frighten them by banging on terrariums, screaming or disturbing them in other ways.
Don’t climb over or under the safety barriers, and don’t sit on them. They are there to keep you at a safe distance from the wild animals, and to avoid accidents and injury.
