Enrichment for Nero the Turkey Vulture
Turkey vultures, as you know, are very used to putting their heads into (body) cavities to retrieve bites of their food. We often will put Nero's food into objects so he has to spend time getting it out, as a way to mimic natural behavior. This is an enrichment activity to keep him healthy.
A nice piece of rat will be a part of Nero's lunch today.
