Snow Shuts Down Oregon Zoo, So Worker Skis To Check On Animals And This Is What He Finds

When the Oregon Zoo had to close because of snow, a worker skied in to check on the animals. Turned out they were having a blast in all that snowflaky goodness! We see polar bear Nora playing in the white, sea otters ‘otterly’ enjoying the snow, and harbor seals loving the icy swim… However, the best bit is Samudra the Asian elephant, probably seeing the snow for the first time – and its reaction is EVERYTHING.

The polar bear is just trying to remind everyone that snow is where he belongs, and it's a cruel prison without it.

Better than being on a melting block of ice drifting away from a rocky wasteland that has no food for you any more. Unfortunately.

This is so cute. I love the way the seal keeps tapping the other as if to say 'Look at all the snow! LOOK at all the SNOW! Fab.

Great to see natural behaviour from the polar bears and seals. I think the elephant was the most active one I have ever seen. Obviously enjoying having something new to interact with.
