Patas Monkey Enrichment

Foraging in the Sub-Straight

Note: These enrichment activities are used to encourage foraging and increase the curiosity of the animal.

Treats were hidden in the sub-straight of grass cuttings, wood chips, leaves, etc.


Charlene mostly foraged for cereal and nuts.


After sitting in one spot for 10 minutes, her cheek pouches became quite full. By 20 minutes they were bulging!
