The elephants got a taste of a German winter at the Berlin Zoo this week as they played in the snow, getting into play fights and sampling a bit of the frozen treat.
Ko Raya, an Asian elephant, even rolled around in the snow in her enclosure at Zoologischer Garten, where temperatures have been staying below zero.
And hopefully, she liked it, as even more snow has been predicted in the German capital. Germany got 12 inches of snow on Christmas night alone.
Asian elephants in the wild don’t often see snow, as they are found primarily in countries like Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, parts of Nepal and Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia.
But, Ko Raya has never known a different climate, as she was born at the Berlin zoo in March 2009.
Even in the frigid weather, she brings a touch of sunshine as she is named after an island in Thailand.
