article imageVideo: Jaguar, other zoo animals celebrate Halloween

San Diego - With Hurricane Sandy and the election dominating a lot of the media coverage, people sometimes need a distraction, and what better way to put a smile on our face than seeing adorable animals celebrate the holidays.
Last week, the San Diego Zoo decided to let some of their animals celebrate Halloween. Tikal, a 6-month-old jaguar, his sister, Maderas, and his mother, Nindiri, were given jack-o-lanterns stuffed with raw meat and a "bloodsicle." The feline family enjoyed playing tug-of-war with their new "decorations", and especially loved the treats inside. This was the first time the jaguar cubs had been given jack-o-lanterns according to a zoo press release.

Tatqiq, an 11-year-old female polar bear, thoroughly enjoyed wresting with and tossing a Frankenstein lawn ornament into the air. She finished the day by rolling the dreaded monster into the pond, an apparent attempt to drown him. Afterwards, she decided it was time for a nap.
Three California condors also celebrated the holiday. Sisquoc, his mate Shatash, and their "child", Saticoy, received mammoth and saber tooth cat skulls. Swooping down to inspect the new Halloween decor, all three appeared quite pleased to find the skulls stuffed with rats according to Discovery News.
