Disney’s Animal Kingdom Wildlife Treated to Pumpkins for Halloween

As part of our focus on excellence in animal care, our animal experts provide Disney’s Animal Kingdom wildlife with a variety of enrichment items. These special treats, such as foods, toys or fragrance, prompt animals to explore, make choices and maintain a level of activity in their habitat similar to their natural behavior in the wild.

In celebration of Halloween, several animal species were treated to pumpkins as enrichment. Click on the video, and watch the fun!
