To meet the Zoopedia's "quality standards", this article or section requires expansion.

In both Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2, fences are used to define an exhibit within which animals can be safely contained. If the incorrect type of fence is used, an animal may break through or climb over it to escape. A small amount of fences also exist purely as decoration and cannot contain any kind of animal.
