Barkbox January 2020

03.08.2020
You’ve never seen a Game Night quite like this! Our Southern ground hornbills, Epic and Elle, just received their January Super Chewer BarkBox BarkBox and they decided to share their game night fun with Rafiki, our Northern ground hornbill. In the first half, we see Epic and Elle unbox a Checkmutt Chess Tug toy, which squeaks to mimic captured prey and encourages tug-of-war, which is an important part of their natural food-sharing behavior. Southern ground hornbills will offer food to each other to bond as a family or as a breeding pair, often tugging the prey item until it splits in two for the birds to share. They also unbox Doggle, which our keepers can put treats into for the hornbills to extract from this super durable rubber toy.In the second half, we see Rafiki, our Northern ground hornbill and Bird Show star, unboxing the remaining BarkBox toys: a Treat-tac-toe and Toppling Treat Tower. Just like Elle, Rafiki knows he is a celebrity and loves to show off for the camera! By rattling his bill back and forth, he is showing how excited he is to share this month’s BarkBox. Bill rattling is a behavior expressed by both ground hornbill species, often used as an expression of courtship or bonding.- Primary Aviculturist, AllieBe sure to tune in for future "Bawk Box" fun!

Have you met our Southern Ground Hornbills? Super Chewer BarkBox​ sent them some fun toys to try out! Check out this video of Allie, our Primary Aviculturist, helping Epic and Elle to unbox this awesome gift! These items are especially nice because they are sturdy enough for Epic and Elle to repeatedly strike them with their beaks, grab and shake them, or throw them off of high perches without damaging the toys. Epic especially likes toys that squeak, as this mimics the behavior of catching and killing prey!Want to send us a SuperChewer BarkBox Subscription? Visit www.barkbox.com/super-chewer/gift (We can request that they leave out the treats)Thanks BarkBox!!

Our rainbow lorikeets are loving their lunch! Tracy Aviary works with many amazing local partners that help our keepers with all their Aviculture needs while we maintain operations. We couldn't do it without them and are deeply thankful for their resources. Our birds and keepers love you, BlenderBottle!
