Animals at London Zoo Receive Christmas Treats, Presents

LONDON – Christmas came early for animals at London Zoo on Thursday when their keepers handed out some seasonal surprises.

Images captured by an epa photographer showed curious squirrel monkeys peering into mini Christmas stockings, as well as a waddle of Humboldt penguins forming a line for edible treats and an Asiatic lioness ripping into a box-shaped gift.

“Our keepers have been busy preparing seasonal surprises for our animals, including our cheeky squirrel monkeys who delved into stockings stuffed with their favourite treats!” tweeted the zoo.

The zoo’s donkeys also had their chance to get in on the festivities, with large sacks stuffed with carrots being hung up in their stables, according to the zoo.

“We love a bit of Christmas cheer at ZSL London Zoo, and like to find fun ways for the animals to join in the celebrations,” said zoological manager, Mark Habben.

“We’ve come up with a variety of activities to encourage them to use their natural skills, like foraging or sniffing out their next meal,” he added.

London Zoo, which opened in 1828 and is the world’s oldest scientific zoo, is open to visitors every day of the year, with the exception of Christmas Day.
