Pumpkin Smash! Baby Elephant Enjoys Fall Treat

Nothing beats a little pumpkin-flavored treat in the fall – especially when it's a real pumpkin!

A young Asian elephant at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens got to partake in some squash eating during the kick-off event for the HallZooWeen Pumpkin Smash, which runs every weekend through October.

After stomping all over a whole pumpkin with its feet, this elephant picked up the pieces and happily put them into its mouth. Yum!
