And what about the bigger bears?


Charly, a polar bear from SeaWorld San Diego's Wild Arctic Exhibit, plays with a carved pumpkin just in time for Halloween. However, he will not actually eat it.

This is an older Halloween pic from San Diego Zoo, I bet it was Charly again,
and that pumpkin looked quite delicious...

Liebe Birgit,

Ja, herrliche Bilder mit so viel Spaß und Neugier an den Kürbissen. Knuts Begeisterung an einer solchen Überraschung kann man sich gut vorstellen - aber auf so eine Idee kommt man in unseren Zoos ja nicht - sehr schade.
Doch, im Kölner Zoo gab es heute eine Halloween-Nacht mit vielen Gruselgestalten. Ob die Tiere auch Kürbisse bekommen haben so wie auf Deinen Bildern, ging aus dem Bericht nicht hervor.

Gruselfreie Grüße aus einem herbstlich warmen und sonnigen Deutschland.

Hallo Britta Gudrun,

ich weiß nicht, ob der link hier bei Birgit funktioniert
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCYbbcQPg1M&feature=feedu

sonst musst du mal "ErlebniszooHannover youtube" googeln.

Ein Foto davon hat Birgit ja auch in ihrem lustigen Bericht:-D

Doch, auch in unseren Zoos gibt es sowas.Z.B. bekamen die Kamtschatkabärchen in Hagenbecks Tierpark gruselige Kürbisse.

Liebe Grüße, BrigitteE
