Check out these insanely cute zoo animals playing with giant Easter eggs
Friday, April 4th, 2014

Easter came early for the residents of Hanover Zoo on Thursday. 

Workers at the zoo in the German city of Hanover surprised the animals with an Easter egg hunt. 

But these were no ordinary Easter eggs. The eggs were filled with each animal's favorite food — worms, fruit, vegetables and roots.
