(NBC News Channel)—It’s been snowing in the desert—the desert that is Tuscon, Arizona. And for some of the city’s largest resident, it’s bringing a lot of joy.
And while most of the animals at Reid Park Zoo stayed inside their heated homes, the elephants came out to play.
A calf, named Penzi, rolled around in the slush with her sister Nandi. It was Penzi’s first snow. Zoo officials say that’s always special for a baby elephant.
Penzi played in the stream and slid in some mud—all to the delight of anyone watching.
