You know a lot of people dont realize this….

But zoos dont train animals to do “tricks”. Although zoos like to showcase their animals talents like proud parents. The things the animals are taught are to make daily routines and medical procedures easier. This picture may look like she’s just playing with some cute cuddly meerkats, but she is actually trying to get them to each stand on the stumps. This will help in cleaning the exhibit, allow individual feeding(communal bowls means that dominate animals eat all the food), and aid in weighing, all without having to chase, capture and stress the fur out of the meerkats!
