Terrariet Vissenbjerg - The desert - Mixed exhibit

      Housing Geyr's spiny-tailed lizards, Sudan spiny-tailed lizards, horned desert vipers, lesser Egyptian jerboas, sandfish, Lichtenstein's short-fingered geckos, Asian grass lizards, and common wall geckos.

      "The desert" is the newest area of Vissenbjerg, opened in 2017, and is effectively just an old, non-thematized hall that has been completely rebuilt. In here, reptiles and two species of mammals from deserts all around the world can be seen.

      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.

      "Housing Geyr's spiny-tailed lizards, Sudan spiny-tailed lizards, horned desert vipers, lesser Egyptian jerboas, sandfish, Lichtenstein's short-fingered geckos, Asian grass lizards, and common wall geckos."
      Are these all in the one exhibit? Seems like a few of those species wouldn't exactly be compatible...

      Indeed they live in the same exhibit. I wondered about the vipers as well. On one hand, Vissenbjerg generally seem to know what they're doing and have bred many rare reptiles, but on the other hand it's a very new exhibit and maybe they're experimenting with something that won't work out in the end...
