Athena – Not quite a huntress

7 07 2010

We decided to work with Athena, the baby Jaguarundi, today on her hunting skills.  We had caught some mice in the aviary which we figured would make great prey for her.  Her kitty friends were released for a morning of freedom so it was a good chance for her to practice her hunting skills without any help from the cats.

We learned that she still needs a LOT more practice!  After 3 mice and a bird, she didn’t actually catch and eat any of them.  She did get some good exercise and had some good fun playing around but in the end, all of the little critters lived to see another day.  If you look closely at the picture you can see the cute little mouse.
