BROOKFIELD, Ill. -- The animals at Brookfield Zoo were treated to some pumpkins ahead of Halloween.

Hani, a 14-year-old sloth bear was digging away at her pumpkin treat.

Kamba, a western lowland gorilla investigated her carved pumpkin and eventually decided to give it a try.

Even fruit bats got a treat. They got carved pumpkins filled with chopped fruit.

There was even a carpet python who slithered in and out of a carved pumpkin. Very spooky.
