The St. Louis Zoo celebrates Halloween with its animals in the most fun way. Every year, they hide treats in carved pumpkins for their animal friends to find.
Zoo Animals Smashing Pumpkins Is Even More Fun Than It Sound
The treats are hidden in the pumpkins so that the animals can easily access them with just a little finagling. Each animal reacts differently to the pumpkin puzzle placed in front of them.
This year, the intelligent primates were able to pretty quickly figure out the game.
And some even discovered helpful life hacks to get all the treats out at once.
Others even carried their findings to all sorts of different areas of their habitat, presumably to decorate for the season.
Meanwhile, in other habitats, the capybara casually enjoyed its pumpkin treat.
And, much like in "The Lion King", the hyenas played with their food a bit before eating it.
The pumpkin treats weren't just for land animals. The sea lions swam amongst pumpkin glory in honor of the Halloween holiday.
The zoo has documented all sorts of its animal pumpkin encounters over the years. Though the polar bears are famous for Christmas and Coca-Cola, this one seemed to enjoy delving into the Halloween spirit.
