Chessington Zoo's rhinos got into the festive spirit early this week, as they were treated to a Christmas lunch of Brussels sprouts.

No turkey, no roast potatoes, no sausages wrapped in bacon... just a mountain of sprouts.

And, while some people aren't the biggest fans of the traditional Christmas veg, these guys absolutely love them!

Treated to a heap of Brussels sprouts, these three Rhinos - Kanty, Gyazi and Dozer - couldn't get enough as they gobbled up their green feast.

Hailing the trio as "Surrey's answer to sprout recycling", the Rhinos' zoo keeper Sam Whitbread said: "We always try to give our rhinos a varied diet...

"Coming up to Christmas we decided to try some Brussels sprouts, which they chomped down with glee!

"If you can't stand having to eat them, bring them – uncooked of course - to the rhinos. It'll make their day."


So, if you're struggling to eat your sprouts this know where to head with them!
