    And, may I add, what county's codes you are interested in.
    But first, as dean wrote: we are people, not an internet browser. It is polite to begin with an introduction

    On a national level, it is regulated by the USDA. Zoo associations like AZA or ZAA will have additional standards, and some states may have additional standards, but the minimal requirements for any exotic animal facility that is open to the public come from USDA.
