In August the Bronx Zoo welcomed two white rhinoceros brothers. The three-and-a-half-year-olds weigh in at about 4,000 lbs, but somehow didn't seem to use any of that weight to crush the pumpkin they were given as an early Halloween treat (meanwhile, this rhino in Chicago gave its pumpkin the horn!).
