    "we want to stimulate the naturally behavior" By giving them music instruments..
    Something is wrong here

    They should throw in a copy of FL Studio and an AT2020 so the otters can make a trap track.

    “We want our animals to be as natural as possible.” Then don’t keep them in captivity 😐

    I lost it when the otters were playing the piano. They’re so cute!

    Poor animals. It breaks my heart and infuriates me that they are being treated this way and at the same time the zoo tosses dust in our eyes as if instruments matter and make the difference. They all should be free in natural habitat,free and protected like Djuma in Africa etc. Seeing such majestic animals as the lion not being in a pride free roaming the land or the elephant and all the other animals its very,very sad. F your zoo and your non guilt and non existant conscience for the benefit of getting richer for some tickets at the expense of the lives of these animals. You who own the zoo should be behind these awful cages and then maybe,just maybe i would consider paying for a ticket

    Animals appreciate music and art more than some people do…hope Homo sapiens now realise what’s truly important… by nature

    Humans R so disgusting.. You don’t have the right to say what you said .. If you want them to live naturally CLOSE THE FUCKING ZOO FFS .. If you want to keep the zoo you can’t be « good to animals» in the same time .. U don’t get both moral positions .. So disgusting
