Animals Enjoy Heart-Shaped Snacks Ahead of Valentine's Day at Chicago Zoo

Animals at the Brookfield Zoo – in suburban Chicago, Illinois – were treated to special heart-shaped snacks ahead of Valentine’s Day.

Footage shared by the Chicago Zoological Society shows western lowland gorillas, a Cape porcupine, gray seals, meerkats, squirrel monkeys, and spider monkeys enjoying their treats, made specially for each animal’s respective diet.

“The Animal Programs staff is always thinking of ways to physically and mentally stimulate the animals at Brookfield Zoo,” the Chicago Zoological Society said in a press release. “One way is by providing them with a variety of different enrichment and food items they normally do not receive.” Credit: Lynette Kleisner/Chicago Zoological Society via Storyful
