It's Fun Fact Friday! πŸŽ‰
Rabbit's eyes are positioned on the side of their head, allowing them to have almost a 360 degree range of sight! πŸ‘€ This helps them keep an eye out for predators trying to sneak up behind them!
Know any other cool rabbit facts? Let's hear 'em! πŸ‘‡

Why is a snake's tongue forked?

You might know that snakes detect smell by picking up scent particals with their tongues, but do you know why a snake's tongue is forked at the end? πŸ€”

Snakes actually use that fork in their tongue to detect scent gradients in their environement which gives them a sense of direction! 🐍

Penny is one of our Serama bantam hens and, contrary to what it might look like, Penny is actually fully grown! πŸ”β€ Serama bantam chickens are the smallest breed of chicken in the world, averaging out at a weight of less than 500g! That's less than a loaf of bread!

How cute is she?! 😍

Who else loves Polar Bears?! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈβ€

Today is #InternationalPolarBearDay which focuses on raising awareness on the issues facing polar bears and all the ways that we can help by reducing our carbon footprint!

There are many ways to reduce YOUR carbon footprint but some of the easiest steps include using reusable bags when shopping, turning lights off when you leave a room, and (of course) recycle! ♻️

How else have you reduced your carbon footprint? πŸ’šπŸ‘‡

Today is #DogBiscuitAppreciationDay ! 🐾
So, if you are looking for ways to celebrate, how about this homemade no-bake treat! πŸ‘‡

Simply combine equal parts peanut butter & coconut oil (we are using organic), microwave for 30 second intervals until melted and evenly mixed, pour into your favorite ice tray, and put in the freezer until frozen! It's that easy! 😁

❀Happy Valentine's Day!❀
Some of our animal ambassadors worked really hard on some Valentine's Day cards to show just how much they love you! πŸ₯°β€ Who would you pick to be your Valentine? 😍

02/14/2021

With Valentine's day approaching we wanted to take this week to focus on how we can show our pets some love! πŸ₯°β€

Enrichment is the perfect way to show your pet some love! Not only does enrichment keep your pet busy and entertained but can also be a way to make daily feeding or care fun! ❀

One of Sebastian's favorite enrichment activities is basking in the sun! β˜€οΈ As a reptile, sunlight and heat are very important in keeping him happy and healthy!

Another excellent way to show your pet some love is with proper grooming! Different pets need different levels of grooming, but grooming is still a very improtnat part of keeping your pet healthy!

For Rio, part of his grooming routine inculdes baths with a spray bottle! How cute is he?! ❀

Exercise is an excellent way to show your pet some love! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβ€ Appropriate exercise helps keep your pet in shape and has many health benefits! Not all exercise is the same, however, and you should always be sure to research the kind of exercise your particular pet needs!

Bella's exercise routine includes daily walks and weekly lunging! Lunging (pictured) is helpful in developing balance, rhythm, improving a horse's gaits, as well as for general exercise! πŸ’ͺ

Vet care is important way to show love to any pet! Regular checkups help identify issues early and keep your pet as happy and healthy as they can be! πŸ©ΊπŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ Regular vet visits are also important for routine care such as nail trims, vaccines, and teeth cleanings!

One way you can show your pets some love is by feeding them the proper diet! πŸ₯—πŸ’š Guinea pigs for example, are not capable of synthesizing their own vitamin C 🍊 and therefore it is really important to ensure they get the proper amount in their daily diet!

Luckily, the salad Gus is sitting in has all the vitamin C he needs! πŸ₯—πŸ₯¦πŸ₯¬ What is your pet's favorite meal? πŸ‘‡
