Zoo Animals Celebrate Halloween

At Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the animals from the Edge of Africa enjoyed special Jack-O’-Lanterns in the festive spirit of Halloween.  Inside each carved pumpkin was a unique treat depending on the animal’s diet.  Lions and hyenas were tempted by meat. Ring-tailed lemurs sought grapes, while meerkats were after mealworms. Hippos love fruit, but Kita enjoyed playing with the buoyant pumpkin for a few minutes before smashing it and eating it.
