SYDNEY, Australia - Animals at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia got to enjoy Christmas a little early this year and they went bananas. The kangaroos got to feast on fruit and edible flowers while the giraffes enjoyed cool, icy snacks.

The presents are meant to keep the creatures stimulated.

"We make sure we give them enough things to stimulate them physically and mentally on a daily basis,"  said Johnny Wade, Taronga Zookeeper.
