Ice Treats

Frozen juice with or without treats. We also place small sticks of cut browse for them to hold onto while eating their ice treats. We use these to provide added hydration in hot, humid weather.


This is one of our females (Sally) enjoying her ice treat with out getting her hands sticky. (Notice she is holding it by the stick provided)

- We use anything from small yogurt containers to large black tubs to make our ice treats. We can toss them the smaller ones and place the larger ones in their exhibit before they are put into their yard.
