The animals in Busch Gardens’ Edge of Africa enjoyed carved pumpkins during the week leading up to Halloween.
Different treats that appeal to each animal were placed inside the gourds. 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.
