From an inquisitive baby bear to a huge Komodo dragon and from the tiniest fish to a beautiful black jaguar, a host of species have been getting stuck into their themed surprises.
Providing the animals’ meals in imaginative and unusual ways ensures they have to explore, think and work for their food.
The carved pumpkins coincide with the our family-friendly half term spectacular The Enchantment of Chester Zoo, which is running every day until 31 October.
The event, which is free to visitors, is a magical, theatrical take on Halloween filled with adventure, acrobatics, music and costumed characters.
