Our Hyena came out on exhibit today to discover new grass, plants and a new structure made out of an old tree. The Zookeepers have been working behind the scenes for over two months on the structure and other features.
Meat juice popsicles where placed around the exhibit to give her some motivation to explore the new areas. Zoo staff and visitors were watching as she cautiously tested the sturdiness of the new structure, but did not let fear of new things stop her from getting to all the treats in the exhibit. After gathering everything in the exhibit, she moved it all to her den and had a nice feast.
Come out and see the renovations before the hyena digs up all that beautiful sod:)
