Have you ever wondered what happens to all those leftover Halloween pumpkins? Turns out elephants have quite the sweet tooth!

Pictured above is an African elephant from the Oakland Zoo taking a big chomp out of an enormous orange squash.

The zoo doesn't just use donated pumpkins to feed the animals. Some went to the tiger pen so the big cats could have something to bat around with their big paws.
