Albuquerque zoo residents revel in rare snow day

The winter storm forced the Albuquerque zoo to shut down for a rare snow day Wednesday, and while some of the animals hunkered down, others were loving it. 

The polar bears lounged like kings in their castle, while the ocelot tasted the morning snow. 

Workers were busy clearing pathways to prepare for visitors when the facility reopens, and the meerkats and ducks did their best to stay warm.
