It wasn’t just the young at heart who enjoyed the recent snowfall.

The animals of ZSL Whipsnade Zoo were out and about exploring their new glimmering, white landscape after heavy snowfall coated the zoo.

An array of animals, including African hunting dogs, Eurasian lynx, gaur and lions, were spotted investigating the sudden changes to their surroundings.
