Panda Updates – Friday, April 20
One of the giant pandas’ favorite enrichment items is a 50-gallon drum that we have cut in half length-wise. All of the giant pandas have used these in various ways. They can serve as a surface to recline against while eating bamboo. We can hide biscuits/produce in or underneath them. The youngsters love playing in them! Since the bottom is rounded, they can rock back and forth, and the giant pandas love that. I’ve even seen the cubs and sub-adults sleeping in them. It’s such a simple, yet highly effective, item to offer our pandas to enhance their day. Check out a video on our social media networks!
