Making a right old meal of All Hallows Eve this week are the inhabitants of Kincraig’s Highland Wildlife Park.

Here’s one making very short work of her pumpkin, courtesy of The Royal Zoological Society Scotland.

"The wolverines at the park enjoyed lots of spooky themed enrichment," said a spokesperson at Kincraig.

"The pumpkins were a particular hit with Tina the female wolverine who really enjoyed ripping apart the treat."

Wolverine are the largest terrestrial member of the Mustelidae family, which includes weasels, stoats, badgers and otters.

They are tough and powerful animals and are normally found in the Arctic and subarctic areas of Europe, Asia and North America.

These days the animals are scarce throughout most of their European range due to over-hunting and diminishing prey populations, which brings them into conflict with humans as they are forced to feed upon domestic livestock.
