DENVER — The Denver Zoo’s lion cubs Sango and Sabi are ready for Halloween a day early.

The cubs played with a pumpkin in the zoo’s Predator Ridge exhibit Wednesday. It was the first time many guests got to see Sango, a 1-year-old male cub from Lufkin, Texas’ Ellen Trout Zoo.

On Halloween day, zoo guests are invited to watch elephants squash massive pumpkins at the Toyota Elephant Passage exhibit at 11:30 a.m. The two pumpkins, estimated to weigh around 400 and 500 pounds each, are a donation from Brian Deevy, a giant pumpkin hobbyist.
