Recently three goats took up residence at Monarto while they're not required for siring at Adelaide Zoo. Gordon, Toby and Jasper are very friendly and eager to get onto keeper utes and be involved in daily husbandry duties, often more than keepers would like!
On a weekly basis the goats are moved around Monarto as enrichment for both the goats and the neighbouring animals. Last week it was time to visit the lions (don't worry, the pride was safely secured in their night quarters prior to the visit!).
The goats thoroughly enjoyed exploring the lion habitat while the pride eagerly looked on. The goats were very relaxed and inquisitive, loving the grass, trees and space, while the lions were VERY interested!
