FARGO - At the Red River Zoo this Easter Sunday, even the animals got treats.

Open on Easter for the first time, the zoo had Easter baskets and eggs for its animals, filled not with chocolate and jelly beans, but with treats the animals normally munch like apples, sweet potatoes and hay.

   Zoo executive director Lisa Tate said their being open on Easter was a way to give families something fun and educational to do on the weekend.

The day featured a schedule of events at various exhibits, with talks given by each animal's keepers and the dispersal of special Easter eggs to each group.
