Those who are interested in exotic ghost insects, hairy spider legs and scaly reptiles such as snakes and lizards will encounter a special place. Hellabrunn Zoo's newly opened Discovery Cave in the Jungle World features creepy crawlies and reptiles in all shapes and sizes and specifically caters for guided tours for children and adult as well as educational workshops.
"With our Discovery Cave, we would like to offer an opportunity to experience selected species as part of our guided tours and educational workshops, as well as raise awareness for dealing with these supposedly terrifying creatures," says zoo director Rasem Baban, surrounded by terrariums with snakes, lizards, insects and spiders.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
