Pehn and Angkor the binturongs at Drusillas Park, Sussex enjoy their pancakes as part of their Shrove Tuesday tradition.
Their savoury style crepes were created from a mixture of parsnip and pear and topped with raisins.
Zookeepers at Port Lympne in Kent helped their capuchins mark Pancake Day.
Black capped capuchin monkeys normally live in Latin America. They can eat pretty much anything. Fruit, eggs and even insects or bats. But pancakes are probably a first for them
Red pandas at Drusillas Park have joined in the celebration of Shrove Tuesday by eating some special pancakes.
Mulan and Tibao were served unconventional crepes - from a mix known as panda cake.
Panda cake is a special dietary product which contains many of the daily nutrients required to keep the pandas fit and healthy.
Head Keeper Mark said: "We work hard in the zoo to deliver foodand other items of interest to the animals in ways that will keep them mentally stimulated.”
"Pandas are nervous creatures and they were a little wary at first. Mulan was the first to come and investigate - she can never resist a grape! She cleared the whole crepe up in a jiffy!”
Shove Tuesday will, of course, be marked today by eating and flipping a pancake or two. Teams will compete in the traditional race in Reading this morning. While a business in Brighton wants to break a world record for the largest stack of crepes ever made.
Plenty of rivalry earlier today at the traditional Shrove Tuesday pancake races. In towns and villages right across the region, and even in Westminster, contestants lined up with their frying pans to battle it out for the top honours - here's Divya Kohli.
