Why We Like It

This is great idea for presenting meals in a new and exciting way. Animals must move around the area that it is hung to access all of the food, which mimics the way they would move in a tree to access different leaves or fruits.

Materials
  • Circular clothes drying rack

  • Hanging hardware

How to Make It
  1. Clean the drying rack

  2. Place pieces of food in each clip

  3. Safely hang in your animal's enclosure and ensure there is no risk of entanglement
