Bring the family to watch the primates, hoofstock, carnivores (including cats) and elephants enjoy some extra-special enrichment activities. Enrichment items papier-mâché toys, egg-shaped cereal bars, frozen treats, painted boxes, gelatin molds and, of course, hard-boiled dyed eggs. The animals absolutely eat it up! Treats and toys are prepared especially for the animals by their zookeepers. Enrichment items are often enhanced with fruit, peanut butter, popcorn, meat or other food, according to the species. Guests are encouraged to show up early to watch enrichment activities before the items are all gone.
