Bucket Forest

Most land dwelling animals




Object Manipulation

Why We Like It

This is a really easy way to temporarily change an animal's environment. Animals can spend time investigating the grass and sand, and can also destroy the enrichment by pulling out the blades of grass. 

  • Dried grass (ensure it is a variety that is safe for your animal)

  • Durable rubber buckets

  • Clean sand

How to Make It
  1. Ensure that the grass and sand are thoroughly washed and cleaned

  2. Fill each bucket with sand (about halfway full) in the exhibit

  3. Stick the bottoms of each grass piece in the buckets, as if you're creating a "grass forest"

WildThink did not create and does not own any of the enrichment items shown on WildThink's enrichment database.

WildThink is not responsible for any animal injuries or deaths that may occur whilst using enrichment found on WildThink's enrichment database. It is the responsibility of animal caretakers, managers, curators, and attending veterinarians to ensure that each enrichment item and the materials used to make the enrichment item are safe and suitable for an animal prior to use.
