Happy Halloween: Zoo animals crush, eat and play with pumpkins

Turns out, zoo animals love pumpkins, too. What could be better for Halloween?

And this is what happens when a big orange cats meets a big old pumpkin.

And when lions get to play with them. The pumpkins, that is.

Elephants at the Oregon Zoo crushed huge pumpkins. Because, what else do you do when you’re an elephant faced with the prospect of pumpkin squashing.


The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore also gave pumpkins to their elephant.
