While the smaller brothers are having fun or getting something to eat, Dilly gets on the top of the hill and looks around vigilantly and listens intently to see if something dangerous is comming. If he notices something suspicious, he whistles and his brothers immediately run to the burrow. Villy and Billy respect their brother very much and always share tasty treats with him.

All the animals at the zoo are under the constant supervision of the vet, they are vaccinated and have all the required medical certificates. The communication between customers and pets is being watched and controlled by the experienced supervisors who are usually veterinarians or zootechnicians. They can give advice on how to feed exotic animals and take care of them in order to ensure the warm and comfortable process of mutual communication for both customers and animals.
