Animals in the Minsk zoo are now getting increased amounts of meat because of the frosty weather.
Improved nutrition helps maintain the required body fat to safely ride out the colds.
In addition, all pets can hide in their own insulated houses. Some of them were moved to winter pavilions.
The Minsk zoo called on Minsk residents who have natural New Year trees to bring them to the zoo. Here these trees will be processed and used as food or toys for some animals.
