Asian Short Clawed Otter Enrichment!

It was enrichment time again over at the otter enclosure with our three cheeky boys getting their paws on a whole box of tasty treats!
Something as simple as a cardboard box can be so useful to the keepers, and so rewarding to the animals.
Inside the box we hid eggs, fish, chicken, mealworms, tomatoes and some monkey nuts!
By cutting small holes in the box, the otters were able to use their dextrous paws to take out the food!

In the end they worked out that the easiest and quickest way to the food was to just tip over the box and open it up!
