While Bel Air shopping centre allowed Egg to film real hyaenas and vultures on their property, they drew the line at the rest of the cast.
CFX created the gorillas, hippos, and vervet monkeys as animatronics, while DOP Werner Maritz filmed the herds of elephants, pelicans and ostriches on location at Brooker's Farm.
"We also built a temporary studio there," says Egg producer, Nicci Cox. "Art director John Nankin painstakingly worked out the shopping centre floor plan to rebuild it at Brookers. It had to be shot in sections as the area we had was not as big as the area in the centre."
Sinister Studio handled the post, while James Hosking from Left was the editor.
