Oldest polar bear in North America rolls in snow at SF Zoo

A polar bear named Uulu had not seen snow for nine months until the San Francisco Zoo dropped ten tons of snow into her pen Friday.

Uulu, the oldest polar bear in North America, according to the Zoo, can be seen in a video rolling around and relaxing in the freshly delivered snow. The 35-year-old sow has lived at the zoo since Ronald Reagan was U.S. president.

The last time she rolled around in snow was for International Polar Bear Day on Feb. 27. The snow lasted for three days.
