Harbor Seal Enjoys Snow Day at Des Moines Zoo

An energetic Canadian harbor seal squirmed in the snow at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa, on January 15 after a blizzard hit the region.

Footage shared by the Blank Park Zoo shows Ross the seal burrowing his body into a pile of snow. “Anyone else enjoying their snow day as much as harbor seal Ross?” the zoo wrote in a Facebook caption.

Ross was found on the coast of British Columbia and rescued when he was five days old. The seal was nursed back to health at a Vancouver aquarium before finding a permanent home in Iowa, according to the Blank Park Zoo. Credit: Blank Park Zoo via Storyful
