• Two Tires for Flora

    2,669 views 18 hours ago
    Thanks to Caregivers' creative engineering and some donated firehose and tires, Flora happened upon a new and enticing enrichment device in the Africa Habitat! The tires bend and stretch but won’t break, making them the perfect objects for Flora's attention. In captivity, enrichment stimulates natural behavior so that elephants can healthily exercise their bodies and minds. Whether it’s knocking down trees or digging in the mud, Flora’s style of “play” is a little more rambunctious than Tange’s. While Tange didn’t seem too interested in the tires, Flora had a different reaction: In this case, Flora uses her trunk, tusk etc to inspect the new addition. Flora, Tange, and the tires can be seen at www.elephants.com/elecam. Show less
