The National Zoo in Washington, like many other zoos around the country, is helping its animal residents celebrate Halloween with treats (healthy ones, like pumpkins -- no bite-size Snickers bars here) and special Halloween-themed enrichment activities.
This orangutan is seated on one of the zoo's newest pieces of equipment, a specially-made cargo net constructed from fire hoses. Zoo staff report that the orangs took quickly to their new "furniture," playing, climbing, or just plain relaxing on it. (Keepers also utilize the net in enrichment activities for the apes, hanging toys and puzzle feeders from it.)
