How you find us

With help of the map you will find us at address Ljubljanska cesta 13a, Bled



We are already engaged in the care of exotic animals. For the past ten years we have also been helping people who have to surrender their animals due to various life situations. We adopt their animals than keep for ourselves or find them a new home.



If we count the animals in terrariums, aquariums and cages, we roughly arrive at such a high number. Most of them are common types of exotic pets, however, you can observe many different shapes, colors and sizes of animals at the exhibition.


There are several activities for school or kindergarten groups

Students, pupils and children from kindergarten can visit us or our animals can come to your institution. The activities take place in the form of a visit, a workshop with a special theme or as a natural history day at our place or at school.

We also hold special camps during the holidays. They are dedicated to animal care, yet relaxing and fun.

Zoos are important because they teach people about the diversity of species. They also breed and return some rare species to the wild, and enable researches into the biology of individual species. They observe their behavior and thereby more easily define their needs. They take care of the animals like a kind of five-star hotel, and allow people to observe animals in their own place in natural living environments.

Both! Animal owner Nika Leben has taken care of many animals that have been found or lost their homes for several years. But it is not a classic shelter, like the one for kittens or puppies, where the animals are cared for only for a certain period of time and then euthanized if they cannot find another owner. Some animals stay with us until their natural death, or we find them a new home. With their story, appearance and size, they teach future owners of exotic animals how to properly care and what they should pay special attention to.

Of course not, that would be impossible because the animals would be too tired. But mostly visitors pet at least a few animals. In doing so, their keepers closely monitor their well-being, make sure that the animal is not in their hands after feeding or during the sheding, and watch the schedule during the day. When our friends - child volunteers - are present, you will also have the honor of being guided by them through the exhibition and accompanying all around.

Our institution operates and lives exclusively from entrance fees and donations. Surviving in these times is difficult due to the high rent of space and heating costs, as a huge number of animals must be taken care of. Therefore, we invite all animal lovers to donate financial resources that will enable the continuation of our educational role.

You can donate in different ways.
