Zookeeper Ruth Reports

We are really excited that spring is coming and we are getting the zoo ready for opening day.  For enrichment, we have been filling pvc pipes and wire boxes with food and hay for the animals to investigate and dig out.  Now that the snow is mostly gone we have been hiding food and treats for the animals to forage.  On the warmer days, the Big Cats can be seen lounging out in the sunshine and the leopard has been seen sprawled out on his highest tree limb. Here is a picture of the chimpanzees as they enjoy eating snow, settling down for a nap, a muntjac deer, and the coatimundi I took with my camera!
