Pumpkin treats aplenty

Lemurs have been enjoying Hallowe’en treats, thanks to kind supporters who donated pumpkins aplenty.

DZG-pumpkin-1-webCEO?Peter Suddock, said:?”Lots of people who attended Hallowe’en events throughout half term brought in pumpkins as enrichment for the animals, and most sections from small primates to pandas have been enjoying the gifts.”

Across the site keepers have been filling the hollowed-out vegetables with fruit and treats for the animals to seek out and encouraging them to use the decorative skin as a toy.

CAPTIONS: Keeper Stacey Ball uses the donated pumpkins as enrichment for the some of the site’s 30 free roaming lemurs.
