    Milwaukee, WI (WTMJ) — Elephants can’t dress up for Halloween unfortunately but they can still enjoy carving (smashing) a pumpkin for the holiday.

The Milwaukee County Zoo posted a video on Facebook showing Ruth and Brittany the elephants crushing pumpkins with absolute ease.

To make matters more impressive, the pumpkins weighed over 200 lbs. a piece, think about how much pumpkin pie you could make with one of those.

Instead, the two creatures decide to just eat the fruit as is, seeds and all.
