About This Project

Cooperative training helps zookeepers care for zoo animals. For giraffe, much of this training focuses on hoof work, because just like fingernails, hooves grow and need regular trims. Our project focuses on continuing to improve our giraffe hoof care by evaluating hoof shape and foot anatomy of wild giraffe and comparing this with Zoo giraffe. This will help us improve trimming techniques to maintain foot health and help to prevent foot arthritis in our older giraffe.
