Farm Zoo Animals Go Mad for Pumpkins

While candy is the precious commodity that children are seeking when they
dress up for Halloween, animals can also get into the spooky spirit.

In zoos across the world, zoo keepers have taken the chance to mark the
occasion by feeding pumpkins to their animals.

Tigers at Noahs Ark Played with Pumpkins

At the San Diego Zoo in America wild boar delighted in rolling the giant
orange pumpkins
around and trying to smash them open. Elephants also like the
pumpkins as they are not so different to the melons that they delight on

For carnivores such as the big cats they filled the pumpkin cavern with meat
so that the animals could have the fun of hunting for their food in a strange
location. The combination of the unusual shape and color was a real draw to the
animals. And each animal had a special diet inside the pumpkins – so worms for
the meerkats and mice for the foxes.

Although Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall had its own take on Halloween – a
pumpkin festival – the animals there were no less delighted to get involved.
