Portland, January 8th, 2016. It was a chilly week at the Oregon Zoo. The deep freeze kept visitors away because the zoo was closed for three days. A coating of the white stuff also made for some terrific photos including Amur tiger Mikhail playing in the snow. (Photo credit, Michael Durham.)

The zoo is now on winter hours, with zoo gates open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and grounds open until 5 p.m.

Here’s a look at some of the Oregon Zoo animals making the most of the snowy weather:
