Animals in the Snow

Animals in the Snow

Although many animals were warm inside their barns, some ventured out to play in the snow!

The Zoo received approximately 3 inches of snow between Feb. 14 to Feb. 17. Not only was this a record amount of snow, but a record forecast, with temperatures dropping into single digits. The snow provided natural enrichment for some animals that foraged for bugs or vegetables that zookeepers placed in the snow.
