Why We Like It

What a great way to put food waste to good use! It is a great on-exhibit enrichment because it looks naturalistic and adds a little extra challenge to the average parrot fruit skewer.

Materials
  • Fruit skewer (you can find one here)

  • Pineapple crown

  • Small fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and smearable foods

How to Make It
  1. Rinse pineapple tops and ensure they're clean

  2. Pierce pineapple crown with the fruit skewer

  3. Spread peanut butter, honey, jelly, etc on the leaves

  4. Stick dried fruits, nuts, or cereals in between the leaves

  5. Hang and enjoy!
