Cats and Orangutans Creature Feature

Creature Feature Archives

The carnivore cats and the orangutans rip into their holiday enrichment gifts at the Houston Zoo. See the tigers, cougar, jaguars, clouded leopard, foosa, lions and orangutans enjoy their gifts, specially wrapped by the volunteer Enrichment committee. Zookeeper staff carefully planned out the gifts according to the wishes and temperaments of each animal. Gifts included fruit for the orangutans and fresh meat for the cats (which also make up a healthy part of their regular diet - no candy!) Gifts are carefully wrapped with materials that are safe for the animals, such as using nontoxic glue to seal the packages rather than tape.
