A zoo in England is banning guests from wearing animal prints, claiming the patterns confuse some animals.

Chessington World of Adventures Resort announced the “zero-tolerance ban” on animal-print clothing in a statement; “We have announced an animal-print ban. This follows confusion amongst our ‘Zufari: Ride Into Africa!’ animals.”

Prints on the do-not-wear list include: zebra, giraffe, leopard, cheetah, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, and African wild dog.

Guests who arrive at the park in banned attire can borrow Chessington clothing when going on Zufari, the resort said.
