May 15, 2023 – Critter Cart Delivery to Zoo Tampa
We had a very successful trip to ZooTampa on Monday. Everyone was eager to watch the demonstration and learn how to operate the features of the cart. The cart perches will be covered in an epoxy that will harden to look like tree bark. ZooTampa will use this cart with some of their ambassador birds and possibly their prehensile-tailed porcupine ambassador animal. The Critter Cart has four enrichment options: Water, Food dispenser, Bird Chirp sounds/music and a water spray. The animals can learn to push the buttons on the perches, or the zookeepers can push a remote to start the enrichment features.
