Each species of animal has specific needs and interests that need to be tailored to their individualized plan of sensory enrichment. Some enrichment activities may be beneficial to one species and of no interest to another. For example, mice love to climb and would enjoy structures such as ladders and ropes. However, this would not be enriching to a rabbit as they prefer chewing and digging.

- Note what each animal sees, hears, smells and feels (tactile) while in that cage
