HOUSTON, TX - It looks like the Easter Bunny came to the Houston Zoo, avoided the scary python and hid a bunch of colorful eggs for the other animals to find.  It's the Animal Egg Hunt!  Mongoose, elephants, orangutans, you name it, they were all on the hunt.

But what kind of goodies are inside those eggs?

"What our mongoose really enjoy are insects", said Tarah Jacobs, a Program Animal Supervisor at the Zoo.  "So, we have given them meal-worms inside their eggs."

No, thank you.  We'll keep it classy.  Nevertheless, children and adults had a fun Good Friday at the zoo.  Without a doubt, the Easter Bunny found a lot of cuteness at the zoo.  Happy holidays to everyone.
