Creature Features: Elephants Smashing Pumpkins

Elephant Awarness Month may be nearing its close but the celebration for Mimi and Dolly is far from over. These two lucky ladies at the Denver Zoo got a chance to play with their food, in this case two ginormous pumpkins, one weighing in at 425 pounds and the other at 660 pounds. The zoo's tradition of giving elephants pumpkins to carve... err, stomp... announces the start of this weekend's Boo at the Zoo and, from the looks of it, makes a special snack for the pachyderms!

Every year they give the elephants at the Woodland Park Zoo here in Seattle pumpkins after Halloween and I just love it!! It's always on the news. The elephants seem to have a great time!

i agree kmitch :( im so torn on zoos and i dont know enough...i really do believe many do good work with endangered species but i dont know if all the animals have enough room....sigh, i guess it is better than being killed for tusks somewhere else :( anyway this IS super cute!! i love wildlife.

No elephant should be in a zoo! They need to roam and be in a lot of open space. Poor elephants. :-(
