Get ready for some squash-stompin’ fun as the Indianapolis Zoo hosts its post-Halloween Elephant Giant Pumpkin Smash.

Elephants from the Indianapolis Zoo stomped and ate an 850-pound pumpkin this morning! We got a peek into the fun on our show today.

Grown and donated by Steve and Kathy Strickler of Bloomington, the 850-pound giant pumpkin was on display in Pumpkin Town as part of the 40th year of ZooBoo presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers. During the recently concluded event, visitors could try to guess the weight of this sizeable squash for a chance to win an Animal Art Adventure.
