Happy Halloween

An adorable Small Madagascar Hedgehog Tenrec got his own trick-or-treat bucket for Halloween. The National Zoo celebrated Halloween at its Small Mammal House, Asia Trail, Lemur Island, Reptile Discovery Center, Invertebrate Exhibit and Great Ape House.  The animals enjoyed pumpkins, fruit-ice and other nutritious Halloween-themed treats prepared by staff in the Zoo’s commissary.
