The frozen winter temperatures in Cincinnati are being loved by some residents.
The penguins at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden are waddling through the cold weather at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily at the Zoo's King Penguin Parade. The penguins march at the head of a polar parade leading zoo visitors and staff around the park.
Penguins aren't the only animals enjoying the winter weather at the Cincinnati Zoo. Polar bears are snacking on frozen fish-cicles and snow monkeys are dining outside in the frigid air.
Admission to the zoo is half price till the 28th of February with special animal enrichment activities being held every Saturday and Sunday.
