It's the Easter elephant! Busch Gardens lays out edible eggs for enrichment (w/video)

On Good Friday, the elephants at Busch Gardens in Tampa got into the Easter spirit with an enrichment exercise that can only be called adorable.

Coconuts and brightly colored Easter eggs — made of edible mache and filled with fruit — were set out for the herd.
