The heavy snow that has all but shut down the Midwestern United States is a problem for most of the people living in the region, but some red pandas in Cincinnati have gained a lot of attention on the internet for how much they are enjoying it.

A video posted by the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens' Facebook page showed two red pandas — 9-year-old Rover and 2-year-old Lin — frolicking around in the abundant snow that blanketed their exhibit.

The video has since gone viral, having been liked more than 11,000 times and shared more than 30,000 times since it was originally posted on Facebook.

Red pandas are native to the Himalayas and are used to being in colder weather, according to the zoo.

Hamilton County was under a level 2 emergency as a result of Saturday’s weather conditions, and the zoo would be closed for the day, the zoo’s Facebook page stated.
