London Zoo creates a forest of fragrant sugar cane; An early Christmas surprise for the Sumatran Tigers
It is a wonderful land for Sumatran tigers at ZSL London Zoo.
Sumatran tigers Asim and Gaysha got a Christmas present ahead of time when zookeepers created a scented cane forest for big cats, according to the Press release by ZSL London Zoo.
The oversized candy canes were a part of the zoo’s Christmas celebrations and were made from giant wooden canes and recycled burlap ‘santa bags’ that were scented with natural seasonal scents including ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.
ZSL London Zoo tiger keeper Kate Clark said “Just like pet cats, Asim and Gaysha love to scent and roll around in strong scents. “
Clark said that before the man Asim had a chance to enjoy the treat, “the mischievous woman Gaysha”, as she described her, decided to play “the Grinch”, in which she started scratching and demolishing the festive scented display in seconds. , “sending it straight to Santa’s naughty list,” Clark said.
“It didn’t take long for Gaysha to reach out and put down all of our hard work,” Clark said. “She’s this year’s Christmas Grinch for sure!” “
Asim was a good sportsman, apparently, and still had a great time sniffing every sack of Santa, before rolling up and rubbing in his favorite festive spices, Clark said.
Asim and Gaysha weren’t the only residents of the London Zoo to have had an early holiday surprise.
The meerkats were treated with crickets which were devoured within minutes, according to zookeepers, People have reported.
