🐒 Lemur training 🐒
During lockdown primate keepers have been focusing on training.👩🌾 .
Keeper Summer has been training our group of Ring-tailed Lemurs to station to carabenars. All they need to do is touch and then hold the carabenar when asked. 🐒
In the video you can see young Matavy during her first session, she picked up the behaviour very quickly! Much quicker than the rest of the group! ❤💪 .
All training at the park is carried out using positive reinforcement, meaning that when an animal carries out a behaviour they get a reward (usually a yummy treat). This training is great mental stimulation for our animals. 🥜🍠 .
Our Ring-tailed lemurs are an adorable family, who are amazing at training. You can sponsor them to help feed them. Link in bio and click on sponsorships. 🥜🍠🍆🥕🌽🥒
