A ghoulish gourmet treat was in store for these otter pups at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, looking on as mum prepares to divide up a feast of mealworms a la pumpkin lantern!
The pups are now 12 weeks old and have emerged from the nest just in time for half term and to enjoy a Hallowe'en themed enrichment of pumpkin filled with worms and fish pieces.
The park is inviting people to come up with names for the four pups and win some great hands on animal prizes in the process.
They include: "Bring the zoo to you" with a fun and interactive animal outreach programme, popular at schools, clubs, children's parties, private functions and wedding receptions.
You may also want to watch:
Or win the chance to spend the day with the park falconer, fly the birds and go behind the scenes. Or be sea lion trainer for a day: Learn about these fascinating, intelligent marine mammals and participate in your own training session.
Or meet some of the park residents with a fantastic encounter programme, including lemurs, meerkats and penguins.
