Jumping Pumpkins at the Toledo Zoo Oct. 26-27

“What do you do with all those pumpkins?” It’s a question the Toledo Zoo hears each year after the fall-time fun of Pumpkin Path and Little Boo.

The answer is simple: the pumpkins provide enriching experiences for many Zoo animals on Saturday and Sunday, October 26 – 27, 2013.

It’s called Jumping Pumpkins, and it’s a great opportunity to see some of your favorite Zoo animals enjoy gourd-y goodness throughout the weekend – all included with your regular Zoo admission.

Animals from monkeys and otters to cassowaries and even elephants will find pumpkins all around their habitats. Some will make a meal, and some will make a mess, but all of them will interact with their environments and engage in naturalistic behaviors.

It’s part of the Toledo Zoo’s overall program of enrichment, which the Zoo provides consistently to ensure the animals’ well-being. Pumpkins are provided courtesy of Fleitz Farms, Myer Farms and Oldcastle Inc.
