Pumpkin Stomp ‘n’ Chomp
This week, Eckert's Country Store & Farms donated 100 pumpkins to the Zoo for our annual “pumpkin stomp ‘n’ chomp” activities during Halloweekends presented by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. These pumpkins are given to our animals for nutrition and enrichment. Some of the animals love the seeds, while others just love to play with the pumpkins!
