Dudley Zoo had a lot of leftover pumpkins from half term this year, so instead of wasting them, fed them to their animals.
Dudley Zoological Gardens Media and Communications Officer, Rachel Hickman, said:
Following our Hallowe’en events throughout half term we had a lot of leftover carved pumpkins and as we don’t waste anything here, keepers filled some up with favourite foods, while others were cut into pieces for many of our 1,500 strong animal collection to eat and they went down a treat!

A man who was found with head injuries in Halesowen in the early hours of Friday has died in hospital this morning.
Karl Swift, 33, from South Yorkshire, was taken to hospital in a critical condition after being found on New Road at around 12.30am.
Detectives are now treating the death as murder.
Two men, aged 23 and 58, who are both from the South Yorkshire area were arrested yesterday on suspicion of Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH). The pair have been bailed pending further investigation.
Our investigation is progressing and while we have now made two arrests we still need to speak to any witnesses who were in the area late on Thursday night into Friday morning.
We still believe there may have been an incident at the William Shenstone Wetherspoons pub in Halesowen prior to the victim leaving and we would ask anyone with information to call 101 as soon as possible.
Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
