Here are our top tips for keeping your Africa Pack animals happy and healthy.

Master Meerkat care
Meerkats love to dig, and their sociable colonies can grow to include up to 30 animals. Their space requirements aren’t huge, but be sure to make plenty of sand and soil available in their enclosure so they’ll feel at home. You can also keep your Meerkats amused using the tunnel and bubble machine enrichments.

Perfect your Penguin enclosure
The African Penguin is another animal that doesn’t require too much space, but with the potential for their population to grow to huge numbers, you may need to give them some extra room! Their new curio ball enrichment item is sure to keep them busy. And don’t worry – the African Penguin is used to warm temperatures, so you won’t need to provide snowy terrain!

Keep your Fennec Foxes happy
The playful Fennec Fox is another small mammal zookeepers should easily be able to make space for. To ensure these bright-eyed, big eared animals are kept entertained, use enrichment items like the tennis ball and provide plenty of sand to play in.

Make way for the Southern White Rhino
While most of the animals in the Africa Pack have fairly low space requirements, the majestic Southern White Rhino bucks the trend. While they tend to spend time in small herds, they cover a huge amount of ground. Make sure enclosures are large and varied, using mud baths, sprinklers, herb planters and more to keep things interesting.

Don’t forget about the Sacred Scarab Beetle
Sacred Scarab Beetles, while technically pretty low maintenance, can still benefit from some care and attention. Make sure the temperature and humidity are just right to manage their welfare, so your busy beetles can focus all their energy on rolling their dung balls around the exhibit!
