“Ring-tailed lemurs are very bright. They couldn’t wait to get the goodies out. After all, they also rocked wildly on the pumpkin, ”says zoo keeper Nicolas Cabon. Some lemurs were even particularly curious, stuck their heads into the pumpkin from below and transformed themselves into a creepy pumpkin monster in no time at all.
It was much more contemplative with the Schönbrunn female panda. Yang Yang calmly inspected her Halloween surprise and then took the goodies out of the orange autumn vegetables piece by piece. Animal keeper Renate Haider: “There were juicy bamboo shoots hidden in the pumpkin head. We used bamboo leaves as edible hair. Pandas mainly eat bamboo. They also like vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots or peppers, but pumpkin is not on their menu. ” (APA)
