ZOOFAB: Species-Specific Naturalistic Fabrication Since 2004
Zoological Fabrication, Inc. is a full service design and fabrication company that specializes in biologically-informed, species-specific zoological exhibits. Through intensive research and close collaboration with animal husbandry professionals, we pride ourselves in a husbandry-based approach to exhibit design which enables us to create visually compelling captive environments that are biologically appropriate for their inhabitants and meet full safety and maintenance standards.
Operating from a full-service studio equipped with carpentry, metal fabrication, mold-making and casting capabilities, Zoological Fabrication, Inc. offers a wide range of custom exhibitry services. Having worked with zoos, aquariums, museums and nature centers across the country, each with unique goals, expectations and operating budgets, we are highly flexible in our design and fabrication processes, and can design your project from the ground up or work together with your designers and architects to develop a strategy that best suits your project.
After several years of research and development, Zoological Fabrication, Inc. is proud to offer ZooVines™, a new line of custom naturalistic vine products for zoos and aquariums that are hand-sculpted from specially formulated non-toxic materials.

Hire us to help you bring your vision to life and we can help ensure that your project is scientifically-authentic, ethically-constructed and structurally-sound.
In addition to our standard flexible and posable vines, we can combine multiple vines of any diameter and style with any attachment point of your choosing. 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. 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.
