A baby elephant at an Arizona zoo saw snow for the first time last week and her reaction was so freaking cute. 

Elephant calf Penzi and the rest of her herd at the Reid Park Zoo took full advantage of the rare snowfall in Tucson, making it into an all-out snow day.

The Zoo shared that most of the animals at the park stayed cozy in their heated shelters during the flurry, but the elephants chose to go out and play. 

"Penzi took the snowflakes as a cue to play in the stream and slip and slide in the mud," said Dr. Sue Tygielski, the park's Director of Zoological Operations. 

The young calf and her older sister, Nandi, couldn't resist a romp in the snow — they rolled in the mud, splashed around the stream, and slid across the slushy ground. 

Penzi even tried to eat snowflakes just like any kid does when they experience their first snow day.

The Weather Network has forecast that a "drastic" pattern shift will cause temperatures to plummet on Sunday, even dropping below the freezing mark overnight, which will combine with a system to bring the first snowflakes of the season to many parts of the region.
