TUCSON, Ariz.- Lions, gators, and bears, oh my!

Those were just some of lucky animals at Reid Park Zoo that got the chance to enjoy some pumpkins on Saturday.

It's part of the annual "Smash Bash" where all of the animals get a pumpkin to smash -- and eventually eat.

The zoo shared several photos of different animals that snacked on the tasty treat.

In addition to the event being free after the general admission, visitors had the chance to listen to presentations and chat with the zoo keepers.

The pumpkins were donated by Brian and Kelly's Pumpkins and Trees.
