Make way for elephants – and pumpkins!

Little Malee, who’s just 6 months old, is getting ready for Halloween with her mom, Asha, at the Oklahoma City Zoo. The pair got to kick around some pumpkins and eat the favorite seasonal delicacy as an early treat.

While Malee was game for playing soccer with the big orange gourd, Asha was more interested in chomping down on her fall yummies! Can you blame her?
