Making snow angels?  At Switzerland's Servion Zoo, a Syrian brown bear seems to be having a great time playing in the snow. 

Syrian brown bears are the smallest of the brown bear subspecies and are native to parts of western Asia including Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The classification of brown bears is not wholly agreed upon by scientists, some of whom suggest that there could be as many as 90 subspecies.
