The St. Louis Zoo's resident polar bear Kali got the perfect Valentine's Day treat: A heart-shaped pink chunk of ice filled with mackerel, capelin and apples.

This unusual Valentine was given to the 995-pound bear by the zoo's nutrition staff. It weighed a total of 202 pounds, and in a video posted on the zoo's Facebook page, Kali could be seen playing with it, trying to break it so he could get to the yummy, fish-filled center.

Kali is now three years old and has been a resident at the St Louis Zoo, Missouri, since May of last year. Before then he lived at the Buffalo zoo after being orphaned in Alaska's wilderness when a hunter unknowingly killed his mother.

Kali's is not the zoo's only Valentine, though. Heart-shaped boxes filled with treats were also given to monkeys and lemurs, according to the Daily Mail.
