Terrariet Vissenbjerg - Euarium - Meerkat/tortoise exhibit (outdoor)

      Though strictly not belonging to Euarium's theme, the meerkats and spurred tortoises still have their outdoor exhibit here. Their indoor exhibit is slightly larger.

      Euarium is Terrariet Vissenbjerg's outdoor area. The zoo has always had an outdoor area, which originally used to be the home of a mishmash of mammals such as wallabies and marmosets. In 2014 it was - as part of the modernization - turned into a zone for European reptiles (hence the "eu" in "Euarium"). There's also a couple of species from temperate North America.


      Terrariet Vissenbjerg is one of only two reptile zoos in Denmark, the other one being Krokodille Zoo. The two reptile zoos supplement each other well, as Krokodille Zoo chiefly focuses on crocodilians with relatively few species of other reptiles, while Terrariet Vissenbjerg has loads of lizards, snakes and tortoises, but only one species of crocodilian. Beyond the reptiles, Vissenbjerg also keeps a handful of different mammals, amphibians, fish and invertebrates, as well as one species of bird.

      Terrariet Vissenbjerg is located in the outskirts of the Funen town also called Vissenbjerg. If you have your own car, it can easily be combined on a day trip with Frydenlund Fuglepark which is only 15 minutes' drive away.
