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.

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.
