Lowry Park Zoo celebrated the upcoming holiday in an unusual way…an egg hunt for the Bornean orangutans!

Hard-boiled eggs weren’t the only treasures the hairy animals were searching for in the grass. Baskets, toys, coconuts, frozen juice pops and other treats were hidden in their habitats for the orangutans to find.

Aside from finding the rewards, the animals benefited mentally and physically from the hunt, which gave them incentives to explore and interact.
