A day in VIDA’s life

Bread hunters

Dear All! Yes, we have now ‘bread ‘ hunters at J.A.C.K. as every morning, to get the infants out of their night quarters, we hide pieces of bread in the open air enclosure and they just run for the food! Pundu is the best hunter and the fastest too! Before the gates are opened, the […]

dusty little faces
