HUMANS aren't the only ones having to brave the icy conditions today.

Tigers, meerkats and otters are just some of the animals enjoying the snow as they play around at Marwell Zoo, near Winchester.

As can be seen in this selection of pictures taken by staff at the site, the animals appear to be having a lot of fun.

Home to more than 140 species, the zoo is owned by Marwell Wildlife, a global conservation charity leading programmes in the UK, Africa and across the world.

The charity engages with over 400,000 children and young people through conservation educational programmes and welcomes more than 500,000 visitors each year to its 140 acre site.
