CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The cold and snow isn't getting everybody down. Amur tiger Max, 3, and snow leopards Everest, 7 months, and his mom Sarani, 3, had some fun in the fluffy stuff at Brookfield Zoo on Feb. 5.

Yet another winter storm dumped around 7 inches of snow on the Chicago area overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Temperatures dropped below zero once again Wednesday night, in a severe weather pattern we just can't seem to shake.

But with their warm coats and adventurous spirit, it seems these big cats don't mind one bit.

Thanks to Jim Schulz of the Chicago Zoological Society and Brookfield Zoo for sharing these photos with FOX 32 News!
