Giant paper mache eggs were filled with meat and veggies. Orangutans cracked them open to find bok choy and broccoli. No word if zoo keepers jumped into bunny costumes to stash the goodies.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Hopping along in the spring tradition, the Houston Zoo held an Easter egg hunt on Friday, not for the visitors but for the animals. Giant paper-mache eggs were filled with meat or veggies. Orangutans cracked theirs open to find bok choy and broccoli. No word if zookeepers jumped into bunny costumes to hide the eggs. The Houston Chronicle reports that the apes did play dress-up with the colorful wrappers after munching on the treats. It's MORNING EDITION.
