A herd of Asian elephants have enjoyed a special treat for breakfast - a record-breaking 728kg pumpkin.

The animals, which are based at Taronga Zoo, Sydney, were quick to swoop on dozens of giant pumpkins that were previously on display at the city's annual Royal Easter Show.

The pumpkins would normally be recycled as green waste but show chief executive Michael Collins said he was thrilled to see them being fed to the elephants instead.
