For a fun food enrichment for our behind-the-scenes bamboo sharks I used a dog toy in the shape of a hollowed out soccer ball. I stuffed the soccer ball shell with restaurant quality shrimp, squid, clam and sardines (the sharks’ favorites) and dropped it in their exhibit. And they were off! Bumping the ball with their noses, batting it with their tails! As the sharks hit the ball, bits of food popped out offering up a reward. The sharks swam about batting the “soccer ball” around, jostling tasty morsels loose, to make it to the goal of eating all the food!
