A Big Cat And A HUGE Toothbrush!!

After watching Bella rolling around on the ground and along the fence for a good scratch, volunteer Nick decided that a stiff bristled broom might be just the job to help her with those ‘hard to reach’ spots. Nick has been working on carnivore enrichment alongside animal carer Gabi (pictured below), and the broom was definitely this week’s highlight. However Bella had other ideas on exactly how she should use her new toy – as a toothbrush! She played along for about an hour, growling and purring in satisfaction, with a little rest in between.

If you’re interested in volunteering as part of the animal care team at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, please email lilongwewildlife@gmail.com
