Tigres, gorillas, chimpanzees, jaguars and other animals get refreshed with long baths and dips in fresh water. In this sense, and in order to relieve them from the heat, the veterinaries and keepers of the Loro Parque and Siam Park prepare diverse fresh dishes which the different species from air, land, and water have been savouring with enthusiasm.
Tasty and pleasing ice-cream with vegetables such as celery, broccoli, carrot, green and red pepper, have been prepared in the form of popsicles for the mammals; while the ones made of meat and ice were those eaten by the tigers and jaguars, the frozen cakes made of fish were prepared for the orcas and dolphins. This activity is part of the actions carried out by the specialists in order to enrich the development of the different species of animals, who are offered their usual diet, but in a different shape and complexion; a fact that positively surprised visitors of both parks.
