Nothing says “summer” quite like the emergence of striped, bright green watermelons on the shelves at the grocery store or farmers market. There are a lot of reasons that the watermelon has become many people’s go-to summer fruit: It’s cheap, it’s fun to eat, and you can consume it in enormous qualities without getting full. The seeds are fun to spit, too.
As it turns out, humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy digging into a watermelon on a warm summer day. Luckily, it’s also one of those human foods that animals can actually eat. These cute animals munching on summer’s best fruit is basically the cutest thing ever.
Next, here's hilarious photos of watermelon skiiers at the Melon Festival in Chinchilla.
