The animals at Detroit Zoo got off to an early start celebrating Valentine’s Day this year. The staff at the zoo treated the animals to some sweet love-themed treats last week. The Penguins got painted pebbles while the wolves got heart-shaped pinatas full of scent to roll in, and the polar bears got frozen heart-shaped treats.

Elizabeth Arbaugh of the Detroit Zoo explained that there were a variety of romantic-themed treats to cater to each animal. Enrichment like this on special occasions isn’t a new thing at zoos and aquariums. Birthdays are regularly celebrated and holidays like Christmas are noted with festive gestures.
