Gorillas, Monkeys Enjoy Spooky Treats, Smash Halloween Pumpkins at UK Zoo

LONDON – London Zoo treated its animals on Thursday to Halloween inspired snacks as part of an 11-day spooky themed special event at the wildlife park ahead of Halloween.

The Western-lowland gorillas woke up to a giant pumpkin patch to explore in their Gorilla Kingdom, with Kumbuka being quick to have a mooch around and choose a pumpkin with American President Donald Trump’s face carved on it.

“While some children may think it’s more of a trick than a treat to get vegetables for Halloween, our gorillas love everything about this spooktacular snack,” the Zoological Society of London’s Head of Primates, Dan Simmonds, said in a statement.

“They’ll get to show off their strength to smash them open, and they’ll love scooping out the gooey insides,” Simmonds added.

Bolivian black-capped squirrel monkeys also got in on the Halloween action and played with a row of baby pumpkins that had been suspended between trees.

“Boo at the Zoo,” a celebration of all things spooky, runs at the London wildlife park until the night of Halloween on Oct. 31.
