Tube Teeter-totter​ -
This simple PVC tube-teeter totter is ideal for many small playful mammals such as meerkats or even skunks. This is also great because it is clearly a toy which when played with is sure to get a great reaction out of visitors and animal care staff alike. The simplicity of the design allows it to be easily built with common materials.

a green bird sitting on top of a tree branch next to a tv remote control
Complex enrichment idea for smart parrots, to give them possibility to alter their living conditions: on custom made switch system you can plug in different appliances: for example lamp, humidifier, fan, radio, even tv. The bird operates devices from cage, there the swiches that hold a appliance are supplied with bird-safe, longer switch. Empty socket places are left without a longer switch, to tell the bird it can not control that device this time.

Foraging enrichment: Add food to a branch, and hide it in a bunch of leaved branches. Animals must search through the leaves and branches to find the food pieces. Suitable for primates, birds and rodents, but also to other animals if you use species specific foods.
there are four pictures of different birds in the zoos and one has a large bird on it's head
Love the use of the kings for feeding enrichment!
