This tube is to demonstrate the tenacity of Serval’s when they are hunting, prey that has gone to ground into a burrow or a hole between rocks. By using The stainless steel peg, a piece of meat can be trapped at for various distances within the tube.
This can be progressively moved from a relatively easy position to further back towards the end of the tube, demonstrating the ability of the Serval to reach in and retrieve the food.
If using a larger piece of meat, it will last longer if it is cut partially through so that when the animal hooks into it with its claws, only part of it will come away and it will take the animal several operations to retrieve the entire amount.
The Serval tube can also be hung by the stainless steel ring so it will also demonstrate the reach of the animal standing on its back legs and reaching up into the tube.
