Zookeepers in China fed animals with special “mooncakes” to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival، a traditional Chinese event، on Sept 27، according to "Press TV".
The mooncake for ring-tailed lemurs was made of rice، corn flour، jam and beef. On the top of the cake، zookeepers wrote “Happy Mid-Autumn Day” in Chinese with small carrots. When the mooncake was ready، the smart lemurs sat in a row to wait for their holiday meal.
Herbivorous animals such as hippopotami also enjoyed a mooncake made of grass، apples and petals.
The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the lunar calendar. The full moon on that night represents reunion and happiness. People usually eat mooncakes to celebrate the festival.
