Here is a short glimpse of the Ashton Cruz petting Zoo cinema. It’s not just another hour and a half of fun filled film, but an educative arena that is all to do with the Ashton Cruz petting zoo cinema. So basically, what are petting zoos?

Petting zooCredit:

Commonly referred to as “children zoo”, these are simply orphanage home where domestic animals are kept. Domestic because these animals are those that can be fed and touched, without charging damage, freight or harm to the visitors. It’s normal to find a normal zoo having a petting zoo on its side. Children are big fans of these zoos, and it’s for this reason that they are the frequent visitors. For the purpose of convenience, some of these petting zoos are mobile. This means that in some instances, the zoo can come to you, as opposed to the usual custom of you going over.

The range of animals being kept is:

  • Camels
  • Pigs
  • Donkeys
  • Sheep
  • Wallabies
  • Goats
  • Guinea pigs
  • Llamas
  • Rabbits
  • Horses (miniature)
Animal FeedsCredit:

As with all other zoos, restrictions over feeding the animals, is keenly observed. Since majorly children visit, zoo keepers now allow you and or your child to feed the animals, from the kiosks that will sell the items to you, in the zoo. Most at times, even without knowing, the food given to the animals might be toxic in one way or the other. For instance, spinach leaves carry good bacteria, once gone bad, (without you knowing) they are extremely poisonous. It’s for this reason that even machines (vending) provide you the foods. From hay, to crackers for a wallaby, you are spoilt of choice.

These are just but the few details that are being shown by the Ashton Cruz petting zoo cinema. It is a versatile cinema, which allows you to have an up close encounter with the real world of zoo keeping. By versatile, all areas of the positive and negative attributes are being covered. For instance, its not common for you to be aware of the problems zoo keepers face, on their line of duty. Diseases and other external afflictions are also addressed in this cinema. It has been rated with 5stars, and fro a start, which is all everyone, was hoping for.

In the cinema, you are bound to get educated on the below:

The assessment team: This is a department whose main purpose is to assess the quality and technique of output that is given to you. By output, this refers to the condition of animals, the treatment you receive, and the foods on offer for you and the animals. They also tackle the role of programming the hours of visiting depending on the seasonal changes.

Zoo Tour GuideCredit:

The protocol team: A department crested specifically, to facilitate the actual implementation of the orders and protocol that have been laid to run the zoos. These range from the wardens who provide tours and guides, to the doctors on hold ready to cater for both animal and human emergencies.

The security personnel: though they are a conglomerate of the protocol team, these guys are independent. This is majorly because they work all round the clock, even in times when the zoo doesn’t have any animals. Understanding their role will help you realize the amount of measures that are taken to ensure animals are treated with at most respect and care.

Over the years, from when animal husbandry began the major problem that has been facing zoo keepers has been animal diseases. Petting zoos are mostly affected, as the animals kept here are more delicate and need the up most care they can possibly receive. The Ashton cinema is now set on a platform that is bound to facilitate you, the visitor, with information concerning this matter. Knowledge is power, and to understand this, keeps you at bay with getting the info on the importance of feeding or not feeding zoo animals.

Outbreaks associated with zoos

Each time animals and humans come into a physical interaction; the possibility of a zoonosis to occur is high. This term refers to the diseases that are bound to affect both you and the animal. Ever since time in memorial, this issue has been looked upon with keen eyes, but from one side of the fence, by the zoo keepers. The Ashton Cruz cinema, now wants the public to be aware of these conflicting facts jus as much. By so doing, the mutual understanding between man and animal will be one that is based on no risks at all, as opposed to before.

Center for Disease ControlCredit:

With the help of the NASPHV union, (state union for veterinarians) the CDC (Center for Control & Prevention) has been able to lay down a foundation that updates the public on factors that might be oh harm to them, each time they are in contact with animals. These two parties have lifted the zoo standards, to a point where exposure to such details is so limited if not none at all. Swine flu for instance, was the eye opener to these issues. The first victim of this disease is said to have been infected from a pig that was the carrier at that point of their encounter.

This occurred in 1988, and with reports from the lab, it was candid that this bacteria could infect humans, right on contact with a carrier. Though it sounds frightening, Ashton Cruz has depicted this in his Cinema, in the most appropriate way possible for you.  A strain of “E coli” was later seen, six years down the line. This was said to have been realized from the common farm animals to their keepers, via contact as well. Later the following year, calves at an English zoo, deleted more than forty innocent children from the face of the earth. It was now clear to zoo keepers that something had to be done.  Another conflicting bacterium discovered later in 1995, was the cryptosporidiosis. Claiming 12lives in Ireland, this was one that was later associated with sand that animals had access to (the sand was close to a watering river).


All these are juts but statistics which reflect on the importance of visiting the Ashton Cruz petting Zoo cinema. With more for you to learn and even better “eye opening facts”, grab yourself a seat and experience the time of your life.
