On the hunt for treats

TAMPA — Easter came early for orangutans Goyang, 14, and Josie, 30, who shared a coconut made to look like an Easter egg during the annual orangutan egg hunt at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo on Friday.

Zookeepers put different types of vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, coconuts and other treats throughout the habitat for the orangutans to find during the enrichment activity.

This enrichment activity helps stimulate the orangutans both mentally and physically.
