Everyday the animals at wildlife Safari get something exciting that we call ‘enrichment’. This could be a toy, an exciting snack or an interesting smell, whatever will pique their interest so they can explore something new and fun each day. For our Sumatran Tiger girls, there’s nothing quite as exciting as their barrels! That’s right, their toy of choice is a large blue plastic barrel.
Large enough that the Tigers can’t crush them and hurt themselves, and strong enough to withstand the attention of two 200lb Tigers, these things make for hours of fun!
The girls love to bat them around, whack them, jump on them… No matter what else is happening, if they see a barrel, they have to investigate before they do anything else.
