Animals Celebrate Halloween at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

As we get closer to Halloween, animals are getting in the spirit of the season thanks to some fun enrichment from their keepers. While visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we noticed a few animals have been given pumpkins to enjoy and, in the case of the Cotton-Top Tamarin’s, explore! We were lucky enough to see some keepers place pumpkins in the Cotton-Top Tamarin enclosure on Discovery Island as the two squirrel-sized monkeys figured out how to get to the grubs inside! Here are a few photos.

Nearby, the otters also had a pumpkin, but it looks like we arrived too late in the day to see them investigate the Mickey-themed pumpkin.

We noticed that about half of the enclosures on Discovery Island had pumpkins in them at one point or another. Keep an eye out on both the Maharajah Jungle Trek and Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail wildlife trails for even more pumpkins!
