This week we decided to try to build a wig wam to use in caracal enrichment..
We have a pile of bamboo lying on the farm, so made a plan to try to bind it together to create something that will not only give some extra shade, but just be a bit different!
Caracals love to hide in long grass and bushes naturally so we hoped that this would be something that they would like..
With cable ties we bound the bamboo up in a wigwam shape, then to give some extra stability we wound some wire around the bottom to make a kind of frame.
To fill in the gabs we used some palm fronds and attatched them to the framework with cable ties..
The finished wig wam looked really cool, it took us quite a while to make so we really hoped that they would like it!
Luckily they loved it! Immediately they came to investigate, sniff and mark, then they began to use the wig wam to stalk each other1
Soon it was flat on the ground!
