“They’re always after their enrichment items!” Ice penguins, a frozen pot o’gold, lime jello and, of course, green clovers were given to our animals today from our keeper and nutrition staff in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. These items provide stimulation for our animals and they find them “magically delicious!”

This item, called the “Holee Molee,” is just one of many items in our robust enrichment program. Enrichment is an example of the many ways that keepers provide great care for the spider monkeys and other animals at the Primate House. Photo: JoEllen Toler
