The red pandas aren't the only zoo residents that enjoy the cold weather. Penguins On Parade is held every winter weekend from Dec. 4 and Feb. 27, weather permitting.

When the temperatures are below 45 degrees, the zookeepers at PPG Aquarium allow the penguins to waddle around outside for about a half an hour.
