Animals at Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, Australia, were treated to early Christmas presents on Thursday. Tree kangaroos feasted on chunks of watermelon carved into the shape of Christmas trees. The chimpanzees, meanwhile, knocked each other off perches and fought for their Christmas crackers containing popcorn and chunks of watermelon. An elderly Kodiak bear woke up to find a plastic snowman filled with honey, peanuts and dried figs in her den. There was great excitement in the meerkat enclosure, when its residents discovered their wrapped gifts of crickets and peanuts, with several them getting their heads stuck in the gift boxes.
