Elephant Enrichment
at the Fort Worth Zoo

Elephant keeper spreads treats around the exhibit

Like hunting Easter eggs

The log attracts some interest

Bonnie gets her share

Elephants come out to search

Exploration team.

The trunk is a sensitive nose

I know it's in here...

Are we good at this or what?
Problem-solving activities like this treat hunt
help to keep the elephants mentally engaged
in tasks similar to browsing for food in their
natural environment.
