The Mersus Emergo, right at the the start of the conservatory. This is not exactly a sight that you would immediately except from a lady as the giant torso looks anything but elegant. As you step inside, however, you will immediately understand her choice. The area is packed with goods intercepted by customs to stop illegal trade, mostly from virgin wildernesses of the various continents. Traders in live animals, animal skins, ivory and tropical wood still make a very good living from the trading with banned goods. After seeing this exposition you will better understand the secrets of this shady world. Biodiversity, contraband materials, transport documents, backroom practices, the natural situation before and after...

The permanent exhibition of SPRL Carapace, a shelter for reptiles intercepted from illegal traders, is a constantly changing confrontation with all kinds of reptiles, turtles, lizards, snakes, iguanas, tarantulas and more. Carapace provides shelter, care and housing in optimal conditions. The influx does not stop, which means that the message is not getting through.

At least 50 terrariums confront you with reptiles whose sad fate was foiled at the last minute, ruthlessly left behind and intercepted by customs upon arrival or abandoned by distraught, incompetent owners.
