Cakers lived with a well-meaning family for many years after being picked up as a hatchling from the wild which, as the family found out, is illegal. To make things right they searched for a home where Cakers would be able to teach people about her unique species. Due to being imprinted on humans she cannot be released. She is best known for splashing in greeting when you approach her tank, following fingers, and interacting with everyone who comes to visit.
Ralph was injured as a young vulture and joined us in 2018 and has since become a fan favorite on the Raptor Loop. We recently learned from a DNA test that Ralph is female! She can often be seen enjoying the sun on her feathers and enjoying enrichment activities like puzzles.
