DENVER - Denver Zoo lion cubs Sango and Sabi got an early Halloween treat on Wednesday.
The two cubs were given some pumpkins at the zoo's Predator Ridge exhibit to play with.
On Thursday, 15-months-old, 300-pound Sango will be shown off to zoo visitors for the first time after arriving from Lufkin, Texas in July. Sango was held in a mandatory quarantine until this date to make sure he got along with his new mate Sabi. Sabi arrived in November 2012 with her two brothers as a gift from the royal family of Qatar. Zookeepers hope she and Sango will start a new pride.
This isn't the only pumpkin fun going on at the zoo this week. On Thursday, elephants will be squashing massive pumpkins at 11:30 a.m. at the Toyota Elephant Passage exhibit. Two pumpkins - about 500 pounds each - were donated for squashing by local pumpkin hobbyist Brian Deevy.
