For a wicked “gourd” time this time of year, we offer our animals pumpkin enrichment!

Creating new experiences is one way we keep intelligent animals like the #octopus healthy in mind and body. Aquarist Bill recently offered Freya a pumpkin filled with fish as a new take on a puzzle box.

Well, she thought about it for a while, finally engulfing the gourd in her arms and webbing. She sat there for a good while, and eventually slid off to the side. The fish were gone. Who had more fun—Freya or the visitors who got to watch this unusual enrichment activity?
