At England's Bristol Zoo Gardens, even the meerkats are getting into the Halloween spirit (well, we have our doubts that they actually know they're getting into the Halloween spirit) through a specially made jack-o'-lantern delivered to them by zoo staff.
According to the zoo, the jack-o'-lantern wasn't just meant to be festive; it's also a great dietary supplement because pumpkins are high in potassium, fiber and other important nutrients. (We don't know about you, but we'd certainly prefer a pumpkin to the meerkats' typical zoo diet, which consists of crickets, mealworms, dead chicks, mice, sprats, minced meat, chopped fruit, dog biscuits and a "specially balanced diet supplement.") Plus, the little guys sure seem to enjoy exploring a jack-o'-lantern that's bigger than they are!
More meerkat and pumpkin photos after the jump.
