The big feeder is actually ment to be rolled by the elephants and doing so they can find some yammy snacks.


However, ‘a wise child never gets bored’ so our intelligent young elephant Bully realized that the feeder can be used as a balance board.




Enjoy the video!

  1. Dear Mervi
    It is wonderful to see this baby elephant performing such a clever trick without any human prompting. Enrichment is now recognised as a crucial part of keeping animals in Zoos.

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for this cute and creative young elephant who is skilful and knows how to have fun even with a big feeder!
    It is always a pleasure and really heart-warming to watch young beings if animals or humans when they discover the world and learn how to play.


  3. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to the little elephant.

  4. Seems it’s no circus and no zoo training necessary. Young elephants – and I guess also other youngsters – are able to find out tricks and ‘stunts’ without any help!

    It is really lovely to watch the successful actions of the beautiful little-one who sometimes seems to reflect upon other possibilities to act with this ‘thingie’. Perhaps he was a bit disappointed that it didn’t move . . . (!?) 🙂

    Thank you MERVI and ZOO COPENHAGEN for another nice publication in KWM.

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    solche tierischen “Kunststücke” gefallen mir, wie sie dieser junge Elefant
    aus eigenem Antrieb ausprobiert – just for fun!

    Liebe Grüße

  6. Bully ist ein sehr talentierter Turner. 🙂

  7. Dear Mervi!
    Bully is a skillful kid.

  8. Liebe Mervi,
    da hat der kleine Bulli perfekt balanciert, ganz vorsichtigt bewegt er sich und die Drehung ist perfekt.
    Danke fürs Zeigen!
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  9. Bully hat viel Spass, er macht das sehr gut. Danke fuers Zeigen.

    Liebe Gruesse, Erika
