Taipei Zoo to celebrate Halloween with pumpkin shows

Taipei, Oct. 10 (CNA) The Taipei Zoo said on Saturday it will host shows that allow animals to either eat pumpkins or interact with them to celebrate Halloween.

The pumpkin show with red pandas will take place at 2 p.m. on Oct. 17, while the one with otters will be held at 3 p.m. Oct. 25, it said. In addition, an exhibition featuring the living environments of endangered species such as otters and pangolins will run from now through Nov. 1 in an effort to raise awareness of the need for animal protection, the zoo said. The zoo will also hold a party on Halloween Oct. 31, when it will extend its hours to 9 p.m., to invite visitors to put on different costumes to celebrate. Details and registration for the party will be revealed on Oct. 12 on the zoo's website. For more information about the celebrations, go to http://www.facebook.com/TaipeiZoo (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
