Raccoons Chuk and Gek
Raccoon Chuk likes to hide everything very much. He often steals food from his friend Gek, though he does not eat it right away, but rather puts it in a secret place. He has a lot of secret places of different kinds where he hides nuts, beautiful multi-coloured stones, berries and toys. Once a supervisor gets distracted for a few secon - a bunch of keys or a cell is gone. Chuk wakes up early in the morning and walks around his tenure to check if everything is in place. After that the raccoon eats his tasty treats and goes back to sleep.
Raccoon Gek likes to find everything that Chuk hides. In the morning Gek wakes up earlier than Chuk and starts looking for the tasty treats hidden by his friend. He knows all the secret places of Chuk by heart, but so as not to get Chuk all upset, he takes only a few nuts from one particular place. Gek likes nuts very much. After having his breakfast Gek go back to sleep, as he knows that soon Chuk will be awake to check on his storages. It is important that he is not caught in the act.

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.
