Listing data in an SDE

I wrote the code below to list datasets and associated feature classes and shape types (point, polygon, etc.) in an sde. This works fine until I get to the last dataset, Zoning, which contains one feature class and one topology. There, it errors out with "RuntimeError: DescribeData: Method feature type does not exist". Also errors on shapeType if I don't check featureType first.

Guessing this has something to do with desc not liking the topology, but is there a way around this other than catching the exception and then continue? Thanks.

def getLists():     dsList = arcpy.ListDatasets("*")     for ds in dsList:         dsName = ds.split(".")         print dsName[2].upper()          print " - Feature Classes"         fcList = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses("*", "", ds)         if len(fcList) == 0:             print "\t - " + "No feature class in this dataset. \n"             continue         for fc in fcList:             desc = arcpy.Describe(fc)             if desc.featureType == "Simple":                 fcName = fc.split(".")                 desc = arcpy.Describe(fc)                 print "\t - " + fcName[2] + ": " + desc.shapeType         print "\n"
