PICS/VIDS: Animals at SC Aquarium have fun with pumpkins for Halloween

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Animals at the SC Aquarium had fun with pumpkins on Friday. It was all part of the aquarium's Halloween the med enrichment event. 

Officials say the aquarium gives animals enrichment on a weekly basis, but Friday was special because it was Halloween themed. 

Videos and pictures provided by the aquarium show a multitude of animals having fun with pumpkins, from lemurs getting food puzzles and games in pumpkins to an eagle getting a giant frozen pumpkin with fish inside. 

Kate Dittloff with the SC Aquarium says the enrichment serves as a form of stimulation for animals, keeping their natural kills up to par and serving as a mental, visual and physical challenge.
