There’s something about a snow day that warms up our hearts. Due to a snowing blizzard the Oregon Zoo was forced to take a snow day and close the facility to the public. Though visitors couldn’t make it to the park, animals needed to be fed so several zookeepers skied their way into the park. What they saw, and filmed, upon arrival has gone viral overnight.

The Oregon Zoo was closed due to snow, but that apparently didn't stop the animals inside from having a field day. Watching adorable Oregon Zoo animals having a blast on a snow day is warming our hearts!

Footage shows all sorts of adorable critters having an absolute blast in the snow. Polar bear, river otters, harbor seals and even an elephant frolicked in the snow like kids just let out of school. This heartwarming clip shows the purest expression of joy we have ever seen of animals playing in the snow. Turns out animals are having a blast when white blanket covers the ground. Watch how ecstatic they get, playing in the snowflaky goodness!

Watch as polar bear Nora plays in the white cover, tumbling and rolling in the deep snow. Next, sea otters ‘otterly’ enjoying the snow and sliding on the white fluffy blanket, followed by the harbor seals going for an icy swim. Adorable!

Last but not least, we see Samudra the Asian elephant, jumping for joy and running around with excitement! This may be the first time Samudra experiences snow and her reaction is absolutely priceless! This adorable footage of Oregon zoo animals thoroughly enjoying their snow-covered habitats has made our day!

      Why 'credit to Oregan zoo'? For keeping animals incarcerated in unnatural environments so that their only relief is when something like this happens!!
