In addition to the exhibition they also prepare different workshops and lectures about exotic animals and how to care for them.

Light pillar

I was able to observe this phenomena yesterday at Sunset. Here is a photography and a brief description of an event:

An atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above and/or below a light source. The effect is created by the reflection of light from numerous tiny ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere or clouds. The light can come from the Sun (usually when it is near or even below the horizon) in which case the phenomenon is called a sun pillar or solar pillar. (source: Wikipedia)
