CLEVELAND — While most of Northeast Ohio hunkers down to hibernate during the polar vortex, there are a few animals at the Cleveland Zoo who are just made for this deep freeze.

The snow leopards, red pandas, tigers, wolves, and bears have been enjoying the cold. For other animals, like lions, there are heated rock and cave elements. Warm weather animals are brought inside to keep them safe.

The Cleveland Zoo is closed Wednesday and Thursday to keep visitors and animals safe, but the Rainforest Exhibit is open.

Inside there, it’s always a balmy 80 degrees and you’ll find animals like orangutans, clouded leopards, and otters who love the warmth as much as we do.

The Rainforest Exhibit currently offering a buy-one-get-one-free admission.
