Playful Animals Enjoy Snow Day at Buffalo Zoo

Several animals enjoyed wintry playtime at the Buffalo Zoo in Buffalo, New York, after a snowstorm hit the region on the weekend of December 26.

The Buffalo Zoo posted this footage on December 28 of otters, a polar bear, and other animals playing in the snow after the winter storm.

“Anyone else have fun in the snow this past weekend? Our keepers captured some videos from a few of our snow-loving animals that we had to share with everyone,” the Buffalo Zoo said on Facebook.

Heavy lake-effect snow was reported in upstate New York throughout the weekend after Christmas, with two to three inches of snow falling per hour in some areas, the National Weather Service said. Credit: The Buffalo Zoo via Storyful
