Halloween Treat: Hungry Hippos Snack on Pumpkin

A guest at the Philadelphia Zoo had the rare opportunity to feed a hungry hippo a pumpkin on October 13.

Kory Aversa captured a video and told Storyful the footage was taken during a publicity shoot at the Philadelphia Zoo for the annual Halloween Boo at the Zoo event.

Aversa said the two hippos, who are named Cindy and Unna, were “safe and love pumpkins as a treat during enrichment activities.” Credit: Kory Aversa/@phillybestlife via Storyful
