Big Cat Snow Day / San Diego Zoo

It was a rainy morning in San Diego, but at the San Diego Zoo, the forecast called for snow. One-year-old jaguar cub Valerio and his mum, Nindiri, woke up to an unexpected surprise: piles of fresh, glistening snow blanketing their habitat. The duo appeared cautious when they entered the exhibit, stepping gingerly on the snow, unsure how to react to the novel substance. However, after a few minutes, the pair started exploring, climbing, searching for buried meatballs and showcasing their natural behaviours while enjoying their chilly enrichment surprise. Animal care staff said the cats’ personalities really shone through, and it was fascinating seeing them venture to parts of their habitat they normally wouldn’t explore this early in the day — via Youtube
