Christmas has come early for some of the animals at Bristol Zoo as Santa paid an early visit to hand out presents filled with tasty treats.
The Zoo’s crowned lemurs, penguins and raccoons were given stockings and presents full of their favourite foods – fresh vegetables for the lemurs, fish for the penguins and meal worms for the meerkats.
The stockings and presents are more than just festive decoration as they are also a great form of enrichment, helping to keep the animals interested and active because they have to hunt and forage for their food, making dinnertime a little bit more exciting.
