Chocolate was not on the menu though, instead the Easter bunny delivered boiled eggs decorated with edible paint to mark the festivities.

The naturally curious raccoons were a little apprehensive to begin with, unsure what to make of the colourful painted eggs that were placed into their enclosure.

However, after a bit of observation they established that the eggs weren’t going to launch an attack and were safe to approach.

The egg hunt proved to be a hit with racoons, Bandit and Turpin, who explored the enclosure with enthusiasm.
