Excuse us while we scream over all this cuteness! The penguin that was born earlier this year at the Syracuse zoo just experienced snow for the first time and we can't even handle how adorable she is.

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo welcomed Cuatro, a baby Humboldt penguin, into the world on May 22, and she's grown so much already. When the zoo first shared pictures of Cuatro at the end of June, the chick was still gray and fuzzy, and keepers didn't know if she was a boy or girl yet. They have since found out that Cuatro is a girl, and she is now on exhibit at the zoo, getting to be with other penguins and experience her first Central New York winter.

The zoo shared this adorable video of Cuatro Wednesday afternoon, showing her catching her first snowflakes and obviously enjoying herself very much.

It doesn't get much cuter than that!

Cuatro is the 55th Humboldt penguin to be born at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo since 2006, helping repopulate the endangered species that is native to just off the coast of South America.

Reservations are still required to visit Cuatro and the other animals at the zoo and can be made online through the zoo's website.
