To inaugurate its upcoming Boo! at the Zoo celebration, the keepers at the Brookfield Zoo decided to give its animals an early Halloween treat, handing over some jack-o'-lanterns for their, and our, amusement. I love these pictures because the animals act in perfect harmony with how we would expect them to treat a pumpkin with a face carved into it. A meerkat? Play in it. A hippo? Eat it. A rhino? Gore it. King of the jungle? Ignore it.

The zoo will be dishing out more pumpkins this weekend to add to the festivities.
