Our animals at Whipsnade Zoo had snow much fun as their home was transformed into a winter wonderland!

Keepers snapped photos of our animals - from aardvarks to Amur tigers - on the latest snow days as they joined in with the flurry of excitement. Scroll through our image gallery for beautiful winter scenes and to see what they made of snowmen that appeared in their habitat overnight! 

Some of our animals are well-adapted to the colder conditions. Wolverines, for example, have thick and oily fur, that is resistant to frost and their large, five-toed paws help them manoeuvre through thick snow. Learn more about our animals and see them in action when you next visit - join as a member to see them all year round!
