Zoochosis is the term used to describe the stereotypical behaviour of animals in captivity. Stereotypic behaviour is defined as a repetitive, invariant behaviour pattern with no obvious goal or function.

Symptoms include:




Self-injury caused by desperation, stress, loneliness and insanity.

Zoos and circuses are built for profit, not animal welfare. Please, never go to a circus or a zoo.

      Yes, anything but a zoo or a circus.
