It’s that time of year again – time for pumpkins!
The animals at Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park in Scotland reaped the benefits of the autumn harvest this week, getting a Halloween treat with jack-‘o-lanterns in their enclosures.
Lions, bears, otters and others got their taste of that orange squash (a 10-month-old bear cub even got scrambled eggs with his jack-o’lantern), but one meerkat really got into the spooky spirit, finding its way inside a pumpkin and poking its head out of one of the carved holes.
