Chilean zoo brings Easter surprise to its animals

STORY: Lemurs, lions, and rhinos celebrated Easter by eating colourful eggs filled with fruit or meat to continue - despite the pandemic - with a ritual that has been performed for more than 10 years at Chile's Buin Zoo.

Brightly coloured eggs painted in animal-friendly paint were hidden around sand and grass and bags filled with egg-stra treats were fixed onto trees.

"It's very entertaining that they (zookeepers) gave them (animals) food in easter eggs and bags because they (animals) liked it", a child who witnessed the Easter egg hunt said.

Christians around the world celebrate Easter, with many participating in their own hunts for eggs which are often made of chocolate or colourfully decorated.
