Rare Animals

I would like to address this review to all the idiots, and I mean idiots, who think its fun to have holiday snaps taken with rare and beautiful animals on bangla road, these animals are exploited and badly treated, some look terrified, and you people who have your pictures taken with them are no better than the wasters who exploit them, if you don't indulge these wasters they will go out of business, come on guys, after your holiday you go home, but these poor creatures live a very depressing life, so get some humanity and stop it right now, if you kids were being exploited you would stop it straight away. rant over.!!

Well said Goodsoil! We are definitely seeing more and more workers from poorer neighbouring countries.

Great idea. I hope you can bring it about.

Another disincentive to handling them. Slow lorises have a poisonous bite although the ones in the street often have their teeth cut or pulled out. to avoid this. Charming.

Capn -- maybe you could let TA members know when you are going to do it so any people in country could give you some support - safety in numbers
