In the name of animal conservation, zoos can provide wonderful experiences for creatures which they normally would not experience in the wild.  However, sometimes mother nature itself decides when its truly time to play.

In these three videos below you can find these wonderful examples of these curious creatures interacting (and occasionally eating) the snow in three different zoos.  

From elephants to jaguars and even pandas, snow seems to enliven these playful and curious creatures in many ways a toy cannot.
