wood, 5-8 inches wide, 5-10 feet long, connecting several sleeping dens to each other and
to trees within the enclosure. The planks are fixed, and do not move about.
||Enable the animals to cross the
enclosure without going onto the ground, and extends the three-dimensional area of the
enclosure that may be used.
||Walkway is wide enough for infants
to be carried across safely, or to travel on by themselves without falling.
