Watermelon Wednesday At The Zoo
updated: Jul 09, 2014, 4:45 PM

By Santa Barbara Zoo

"Watermelon Wednesday" at the Santa Barbara Zoo! Today the Animal Care team created watermelon enrichment for many of the Zoo's animals. Enrichment is how the Zoo keeps animals stimulated and interacting with their environment. Sometimes it is food, sometimes "toys" like branches or burlap sacks, sometimes scents are sprayed throughout exhibits. It's different all the time.

Reptile keeper Riley Jimison was quite artistic with his watermelon, which was appreciated by the prehensile tailed skinks.

An Asian small-clawed otter went after the fish "hidden" in a watermelon, meerkats delved into theirs, and capybaras licked theirs. Kivu the gorilla just chowed down.
