Lorikeets turn into Piranha-keets for Halloween

The lorikeets of Lorikeet Forest decided that their Halloween pumpkin wasn’t scary enough so they proceeded to carve some improvements into it using their beaks.

The lorikeets turned into “piranha-keets” as they swarmed over the Halloween pumpkin brought to them as an enrichment toy during the Scarium of the Pacific festivities. They expertly used their beaks to carve the mouth, nose and eyes of the pumpkin into something a lot scarier that what their caretakers originally produced.

Check out the time-lapse video of their work.
