The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden uploaded the video to YouTube on Oct 31, 2018.
Set to frolicsome spooky music, first mommy hippo, Bibi, bites into a jack-o'-lantern, busting it open in one chomp, before the nearly two-year-old Fiona (born prematurely in January 2017) totters over to munch on the remnants.
Fiona is enjoying the fall treat so much she gets just a little too close to the edge of the rocks and topples into the water.
The zoo captioned the video:
"Trip-or-Treat. Don't worry, the plump princess was just fine. Baby hippo Fiona slips into the water while devouring her Halloween Day pumpkin."
