If you've ever wondered what the bigger animals at the Utica Zoo during the winter, here's your answer. 

They play in the snow.

The Utica Zoo posted a video to their Facebook page showing one of their African Lions playing in the snow with a giant snowball.

The Lion kicks the snow ball around for a minute before deciding to see how it tastes, proving once and for all that no matter the size, cats will always be cats,

It's nice to see somebody enjoying a Central New York winter!

Don't forget the Utica Zoo is open year-round, so you can bundle up and still visit your favorite animals!
