Oleg: It is commonplace in Europe. Many companies take animals on, to look after them. And provide charity support to zoos. But unfortunately, it is not the done thing to provide charitable support either in Ukraine, nor in Russia or other countries of post-Soviet area. The visitors of Taygan park are often interested… how much feed is needed to support all the animals. That’s why after four years of the existance of Taygan park I had this chart done. to explain what do animals of the Taygan park eat and how much they eat. Meat (for lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, pumas, vultures, foxes and wolves) – 550 kg per day. Zoo is a very expensive toy for every city or republic’s budget. And as for me we did it ourselves. This metal, which was brought from Ukraine, has exorbitant price – 45000 (about £450) RUR per tonne. And we need tens or hundreds of it. Yeah! Hello, my dear. My tiny tot. Hey guys, we gonna eat now. There is a leader and its substitute go here. That’s why you can see such a turmoil in a herd. Let’s go, now there will be a feeding, it is quite interesting. I know every lion, all their tempers. Look there, meat is coming, full barrow of meat. It is horseflash. They like horseflash very much. It’s like a holiday for them. Kazy, Kazy, oh, what a good boy! Easy, easy. This is a tigon Kazemir. Good boy! What a good boy! He yawned. He snuggles up to me. Me: They are tender like big cats. Oleg: Yes, of course, they are big cats and it speaks for itself. Although they have huge gnashers! Good boys. My dear. Look, they are walking there. The leader organizes everyone. Well, seems it is time to start feeding. Junah! What happened with her eye? Come here, Junah, poor girl, who beated you? This is white lioness. She has just marked it. Draw this one to the first of them. Draw everything this side. Draw to him, please. This one. Look, how many lions come here. Food is a great thing, it attracts everyone. You are among lions and nobody eats you! Look, he is oversexed now. Come here. His substitute wants to eat. Alex! Alex! Where are you? Looks good, right? Look, how many lions around! They are everywhere! Fantastic!
Me: You bit! And we need to do it every day. No matter if we have visitors or no. There are few visitors today. Me: It seems to be delicious!
Oleg: Very delicious. Don’t come too close. The lions of Taygan park eat diffenet types of meat. It can be the beef, horseflash, pig meat, lamb, goat meat. Usually we have no big assorment. But today we have a horse flash, and it is the best meat for lions. It is most similar to game they hunt in Africa. It is sweet and delicious. And every lion can eat 25-30 kg at once. But then stay hungry for several days. But we gave about 7-10 kg fo each lion every day. To keep them in good form. We also sell meat to visitors. There are some shops where you can buy a chiken or slab of meat. And drop it to your favorite lion. Every day Taygan lion park consumes 550 kg of meat. I mean lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas, leopards and many others harpies which live in Taygan park. Meat is the biggest spending pattern in Taygan. Especially in winter, because lions eat more feed in the winter than in the summer. They need it for warming. Well, now they have eaten the meat and will rest and sleep. – Why do all of them eat near the bridge? Oleg: As they get the meat, so they eat. Seat! Easy, easy, easy… Your girlfriend has left. You couldn’t shoot it even in Africa.
Me: I know, it’s just a no.
