Snow days make for some of our favorite photo ops at the zoo. A fresh coat seems to get the snow leopards leaping, the red pandas posing, and the penguins parading. Check out some of our favorite wintry moments from the past few years.
Use the hashtag #zoosnowday and tag us in some of the best candid moments you've caught on camera.
1. Grizzlies take a moment to inspect the snow
2. A pair of Magellanic penguins traverse the snowy terrain
We think it makes them look even more majestic. WCS has a long history with these wooly mammals (so we're a bit biased), but we think the American bison should be the U.S.'s National Mammal. Sign our petition if you agree!
6. A few flakes make this squirrel's pose even more striking
7. Caught at just the right moment, a red panda making the most of the flurries
8. Few things are cuter than a sea lion pup with a snow beard
9. A blanket of white causes a tiger's stripes stand out
