Awesomeness and more awesomeness. The pumpkin carving team of Sue Beatrice and Andy Gertler create some of THE most impressive animal pumpkin sculptures that you will find anywhere in the world. Just look at these photos!
If you happen to be lucky enough to be able to visit the Bronx Zoo on any weekend in October, you’ll be able to see this team in action. A new creature or scene will come to life every weekend in October! Sundays are best to see the finished product.
Here’s a look at some of the animal pumpkin sculptures that ‘Pumpkin Sculpt USA’ have created so far.
Pumpkin Sculpture of Orangutan
This carving of an adult male Bornean Orangutan created by Sue Beatrice, Andy Gertler and Julia Jankowski weighs about 450 lbs which is about twice the weight of an actual adult male.
Construction of the Orangutan Sculpture
In the first photo you can see Sue working on the hand. You can also see how they add the musculature before adding any fur. The next photo shows the supports that holds up the long arm.
Seeing how this is made up of lots of parts of pumpkin may open your mind to possibilities for making your own amazing pumpkin sculptures. A pumpkin carving does not have to be from a single pumpkin.

Thank you to Sue Beatrice, Andy Gertler, JL Cook, and Julia Jankowski of Pumpkin Sculpt USA for sharing their creative talents with us via their photos. If you see this post before the last weekend in October 2018, you still have time to see their latest animal pumpkin sculptures at Boo at the Zoo at the Bronx Zoo. Sundays are the best days to see their finished creations. If you see this article after Oct 2018, check out the Bronx Zoo for future years’ October season. This is the 7th year that pumpkin Sculpt USA has been carving at the Bronx Zoo, so I’m guessing it’s likely that they will be there in future years as well.
