Why We Like It
We love this enrichment because it is naturalistic and can be used with almost any animal. Fill it with food for a foraging exercise, or put straw and paper inside to encourage nest building.
Bedding, straw, wood wool, or other stuffing
Food if desired
How to Make It
Use a hole saw to drill one (or multiple) holes through the gourd
If you'll be hanging the gourd, use a smaller drill bit to drill two holes across from one another near the top of the gourd, and thread some twine or rope through. Be sure that there is no chance of entanglement
You can fill the gourd with food, nesting material, scents, or you can just put it directly in you animal's enclosure
