Why We Like It

This is a great enrichment for animals who naturally root through substrate to find their food. It's super easy to prepare, and if done on exhibit, is a great talking point about natural foraging behaviors. 

Materials
  • Container for forage (box, kiddie pool, or tub will work)

  • Scraps of newspaper, leaves, straw, dirt or other substrate

  • Food and treats

How to Make It
  1. Place desired substrate into container

  2. Mix in food and treats

  3. Give to animal and enjoy!
