The very first time I watched as a black bear ate through his treat-filled pumpkin, I was fascinated. Who knew that bears, raccoons, and coati got as excited as my children do about pumpkins. Each year, the OC Zoo hosts a one-day Halloween Zoo-tacular which includes trick-or-treating, spooky crafts, a scavenger hunt and games.
