Disney world animals

2020 is almost over and everyone at Walt Disney World is looking forward to the new year. Even the animals are saying goodbye to 2020! Take a look at the animals of Disney World closing out the year.

The cast members crafted creative enrichment experiences for the animals to enjoy. Enrichment is all about giving animals fresh, unique objects in their environment so they can use their natural behaviors to check it out. When cast members give them novel experiences in unexpected ways, it encourages them to continue to discover and explore.

Did you catch the babirusa pushing the watermelon down the hill? That’s a natural rooting behavior they do. Black rhinos love watermelon as a special treat, too. They’ll use their horn to smash the melon to their satisfaction while they slurp up all the juices. The little rhino calf is already learning how to use his horn, too, even though it hasn’t come in just yet. He’s learning how to move things around with his nose, and he loves finding treats keepers hide in recycled boxes and within his cube made from a repurposed firehose.

Watching the animals enjoy their enrichment is also a good reminder of just how incredibly resourceful they are. The anteater shows a pretty exciting display of skill in demolishing a tower of boxes. Anteaters use their strong arms and nails to dig in search of food, but they also have the ability to stand and grab with them. Similarly, elephants use their trunks and heads to press and push against items to knock them over and get to the yummy food they’re looking for.
