We go at the animal's speed, the time of an animal experience may be adjusted or delayed when an animal has become overstimulated or needs rest or playtime. We always put the well-being of our animals first. Due to an animal’s age or its temperament at the time of an experience, we cannot guarantee that on any experience you will be able to hold the animal.


With patience, we will give you the best experience possible and assure the well-being of our animals.
