Pumpkin season has arrived at the Oklahoma City Zoo and that means it’s time for Chomp and Stomp! Caretakers have busily been preparing fun and tasty pumpkin treats for the animals in keeping with this year’s theme: Ghosts of the Forest. Some prefer sliced, others want diced and some like the whole pumpkin. These culinary creations are presented as part of the Zoo’s ongoing animal enrichment program, designed to stimulate their senses and encourage natural behaviors. OKC Zoo is hosting Chomp and Stomp, its annual Halloween animal enrichment event, on Friday, October 18, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Animal caretakers will prepare enriching and edible pumpkin creations for some of the Zoo’s animals. These activities are free with Zoo admission.
