CORDOBA Zoo is looking for a caterer with a difference – one that can supply 150 kilos of whole and frozen rats, 170 kilos of mice, day-old chicks and 10 kilos of a wide variety of insects daily for its hungry animals.
Their unique dietary requirements could be a real money-spinner for the right supplier.
The contract, which runs to thousands of kilos every week, is worth up to €350,000 over two years and also includes more regular food items such as meat, vegetables and fruit.
But the zoo animals are picky customers. The rats must weigh between 50 grams and 150 grams each, and the mice must not weigh less than 100 grams each.
And deliveries must be made every morning to allow for feeding between 8am and 10am.
