Textures

We offer a variety of textures and finished looks for your vine to reflect your naturalistic or biological needs. Don’t settle on that old and tried rope look which diminishes the aesthetics of so many potentially quality exhibits. We offer vine textures from our basic Jungle texture, our Woody Growth texture (more bark, less scarring), our Old Growth texture (more scarring, less bark), and our Liana vine style. We can vary the finished look to meet your needs as well. Want them more green in color? Need vines with a darker, lighter, even more red-brown? Want more or less lichens on the vine? Have an idea for a color or texture that might work for you? Feel free to contact us about custom orders, or order from one of our four basic texture models.

Custom Vines

In addition to our standard flexible and posable vines, we can combine multiple vines of any diameter and style at a single attachment point of any sort for a custom “tangled” look. We can customize your basic vine order by wrapping it in another smaller vine or two for depth and a more diverse look. We offer custom sized strangler fig reproductions which can be attached to any tree for a tropical look, or attached to any wall, log, or rock for additional climbing purchase and enrichment. Wish you could replace those rope and fire hose hammocks for your primates? We turn our vines into naturalistic looking, weight-bearing hammocks that are sturdy and durable not only adding visual, tactile, and behavioral enrichment for your monkeys or apes, but increasing their educational value with the public as well. Have an idea we haven’t thought of? We’d love to explore any specific needs you might have to come up with a custom vine tailored to your qualifications.

Attachment Options

To accommodate the diverse needs of our clients, we offer several attachment options for our custom ZooVines™. Looped ends can be hooked onto existing tree branches, snags and similar structures, whereas eye bolts are typically attached to existing ring structures with heavy duty carabiners. Clamped ends offer the greatest amount of strength and are intended for stronger and heavier-bodied species such as larger primates.
