Animals at Sydney's zoo get into Christmas mood

Taronga Zoo's giraffes took a chomp out off wreaths arranged out to read 'Ho Ho Ho,' while the local lions took a liking to a pine Christmas tree in footage released.

Not to be outdone, the sea lions received fish placed to read 'Merry Xmas' on a pile of ice.

Squirrel monkeys and capybaras were seen having their own feasts comprised of colored capsicums and elephant grass respectively at the zoo, which is on the edge of Sydney Harbour.
