The Q&A Archives: Plants toxic to zoo animals

Question: I work at a zoo. We want to put Golden Barberry shrubs and Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper plants in our exhibits. Would these be harmful to our animals if they ate them?

Answer: I'm really sorry but I have no way to check on toxicity to exotic animals. Your veterinarian might be able to help, or perhaps other zoos that have successful plantings in their exhibits.
