Chicago zoo animals get special Halloween treats

CHICAGO (WFLA/NBC) – Several animals at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago got pumpkins for a snack on Monday.

Fruit bats, a sloth bear and western lowland gorillas played with, munched on and got their claws into gourds and pumpkins.

A pygmy hippo had a little trouble with her teeth, but she eventually got her teeth around it.

The zoo’s carpet python had fun slithering through a Jack O’ Lantern.
