today's winter treat enrichment was for the black rhino's. the winter gone wild schedule isn't really helpful, since they seem to be changing it daily. black rhino's were supposed to be on sunday and they were switched to today. as well the time was changed. no matter, the male, mishaki aka gene, put on quite a show and it was well worth the wait! he was in the back part of the enclosure zeroing in on his goods and as soon as the gate was opened, he went right to the front and got down to business! he had a christmas tree with fruit and veggies attached to it and more goods on the rocks. he started gobbling right away and after a bit, the tree fell forward towards him and startled him. he gave it a look then went back to eating. he wasn't done but i think he felt that tree needed to be taught a lesson, so he marked it a few times, then started pushing it around with his head. he went over to the keepers for a pat and an ear rub, then back to finish off all the yummies! after that he gave that tree a stomping, peed on it some more, dragged it about more and said "take that!" he had alot of fun with his holiday gift! mishaki, you're adorable!
