Cricket was born in late 2009 at the Lory Park Zoo and Owl Sanctuary in South Africa, and moved to the Oregon Zoo during the winter of 2011. Cricket enjoys relaxing in the higher areas of the exhibit. If you can't find him, look up in the rock work and you may see him lounging and observing.

He's motivated by food! He jumps, pulls and manipulates items with meat in or on them. He also plays "basketball," trying to snag shots of meat as the keeper throws them into a hanging bucket.
