Feeding multi-species exhibits can be challenging in many ways. The first is ensuring that each species, as well as, each individual has access to a diet without excessive competition from another species. The second is ensuring that animals with different nutrient requirements are able to consume the appropriate diet. The third is to ensure that animals do not consume a diet which may be balanced for one species but predispose another to health problems.Schlegal – NUTRITIONAL CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH FEEDING A MULTISPECIES EXHIBIT.pdf     98 KB
