You know how every date on the calendar seems to be celebrating something? An obscure food holiday, the anniversary of an invention, or a social cause are all examples of national or international day categories that fill up the year. In fact, there's so many "special" days that they are often stacked on top of each other!  So if Watermelon Day on August 3rd passed without you noticing, we understand.

But you know who did notice? The animals at the Oregon Zoo. They looooved it. And we think watching them devour their juicy treat will bring you some joy.

The Oregon Zoo shared video of an elephant, bear and tortoise each using different techniques to bust open their watermelon, get it onto their tongues, and into their bellies. We've included the video below, and keep scrolling for a longer look with some stills.
