Thanksgiving Feast with the Beast

For the past few years the elephants have gotten giant pumpkins to smash for Hogle Zoo's annual Thanksgiving Feast with the Beast event. This year was no exception as there were big pumpkins all around Elephant Encounter! Dari got a giant pumpkin of her very own and Christie and baby Zuri got a couple of big pumpkins over in the working yard.

Here are some photos taken by the Deseret News as part of their Thanksgiving in Utah gallery.
You can see that Christie had quite a good time smashing up her 742 pound pumpkin, then Zuri followed suit by trying to smash one of her own.


  1. Thank you so much for the pictures. That is so cool!

  2. It is so wonderful to keep up with the baby and all the fun she has! I would love to hear what she thinks of the snow! Thank you for keeping us updated!
