Halloween at the Cincinnati Zoo

Schottzie the Asian elephant with her pumpkin.
 There were peanuts inside

The Cincinnati Zoo celebrates October by giving pumpkins to some of the residents on the weekends.

Anana and Little One, the polar bears, were not included, probably because the keepers do not want to cause Anana any undue excitement due to her suspected delicate condition! Anana is separated from Little One now. They were mostly sleeping.

Anana dozing. No pumpkins today

Little One takes a nap in his own area

Here are some of the happy pumpkin chompers from last Saturday.

  1. Yep, Polar Bears can sleep through even the best party. Hippos on the other hand, like me, know free food when they see it. Lovely report.
