TACOMA, Wash. — While much of the country is digging out from winter weather, and many people are tired of mounds and mounds of snow and ice, there is one animal that is thrilled that his enclosure is looking a lot more like home.
Blizzard the polar bear is relishing all of the snow that has fallen in Washington state.
Zookeepers at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium shared a video of Blizzard rolling around in the snow that had blanketed his enclosure.
Blizzard is 25 years old and is considered a senior bear as the life expectancy of a polar bear, according to experts at the zoo, is 23.4 years. He’s lived at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium since he was a cub and was rescued after being separated from his mother on the Arctic tundra. If he had been left on the tundra, he would have had no chance of surviving, the zoo said.
