Como Park Zoo & Conservatory
Big Cat Enrichment
If you want to see some serious "LOL kitty" action at Como Zoo, don't miss Big Cat Enrichment every Saturday morning at 10 a.m. You'll see how lions, tigers, and other large cats hunt, forage, and handle food in the wild thanks to always-changing enrichment items that keep animals healthy and curious.
Enrichment activities enhance zoo environments for animals, stimulating them to investigate and interact with their surroundings. Como Zoo enriches animal environments by making changes to structures in their enclosures, presenting novel objects and smells for them to investigate and explore, and by changing how we present food to them. It encourages them to forage, hunt and handle their food in ways that are natural to them in the wild.
