While most of the US has been crippled by snow this week, all of the animals at the Bronx Zoo seem to be enjoying the fluffy white stuff! All in their element, the Snow Leopard, Azur Tigers and Black Bears played in the snow, while the ring-tailed Lemurs stayed cozy inside as part of the Madagascar! exhibit.
The Bronx Zoo is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, spanning 265 acres of park lands and naturalistic habitats, through which the Bronx River flows. Open to the public on November 8, 1899, it is home to more than 4,000 animals of 650 species, many of which are endangered or threatened.
