Florida Aquarium otters get into Halloween spirit
Published:   |   Updated: March 18, 2013 at 07:15 PM

Pumpkins. Otters. If there's a better recipe for cuteness, we don't know what it is.

The Florida Aquarium gave their otters pumpkins to eat, play and have fun with today as part of preparations for its annual Guppyween event Sunday.

The animals' keepers didn't just give the gourds out for fun, though. It was an animal enrichment to keep them entertained and stimulated.

There was also an underwater pumpkin carving contest.

Guppyween activities on Sunday will include entertainment and goodies for kids. Admission for children in costume is $2 and those 12 or older get in for $12.
