Colony Update: Enrichment at LCF

1 mongoose

Valentine’s Day weekend gave LCF’s staff a great opportunity to provide special enrichment to our lemurs.

This Valentine’s Day the lemurs received both paper and holographic cards to scent mark…or eat, as they wished!

They also got to spend some time with a stuffed frog which was passed from enclosure to enclosure…

(quite a response from one lemur!)

…allowing the lemurs to smell all of their neighbors and leave their own scent marks on it.

These types of enrichment activities allow the lemurs to use their natural behaviors on novel objects.

It was a fun weekend for lemurs and staff!
