Did you know Brookfield Zoo has a TikTok account?

(CHICAGO) I only discovered today that Chicago's Brookfield Zoo has a TikTok account. And it's just the distraction you need if you're looking for a short break in your day watching adorable zoo animals do their thing.

With nearly 500K views, this recent video of Brookfield Zoo animals has gone viral.

Watch it, and you can see why. The caption reads, "Paws your scrolling to see our animals enjoying the first snowfall of the season!"

Set to the classic song, "It's the most wonderful time of the year" the animals can be seen meandering around in the area's first snowfall of the season.

Scroll down in the account, and you can find another popular one. With over 216K views, zookeepers can be seen here launching heads of iceberg lettuce into the gorilla enclosure with the caption, "lettuce show you gorilla snack time." The gorillas seem happy to grab the lettuce.

And finally, not be missed is a video of various animals wiggling their ears. Because ear wiggles are adorable.
