A big part of any trainers' day is making sure that we enrich the lives of all the animals in our care. For those of you who follow our blog often, or have seen our animals playing on exhibit, you know that enrichment can take many forms. Whether it's ice cubes, toys, or simply playing in hose spray, the possibilities are endless.
Recently, we added an acrylic mirror to this list. It's fun to see how different animals react to their own reflections. Watch as Northern fur seals Leu, Cordova and even Flaherty take a peek in the mirror!
Do they know they are looking at themselves? Do they think it's another animal? You decide.
