Special thanks to Jodi Carrigan of Zoo Atlanta for compiling this information.
Providing food in novel and/or complex containers affords animals opportunities to manipulate objects and to spend more time performing natural foraging behaviors.
Feeders for Browse and Tool Use
Other food-based enrichment objects are particularly useful for encouraging tool use, for the presentation of browse items and/or to extend foraging times.
Puzzle-feeders provide cognitive enrichment by requiring the animal to solve a problem to reach desired food items.
