FOLSOM - The Global Wildlife Center almost always looks like you've stepped into another country, turn the corner onto the road that leads to the center and seeing giraffes bound about is always something to see.

Friday, Dec. 8 took it to another level as 6-8 inches of snow - an extreme rarity in southeast Louisiana - fell on the animal oasis.

The snow made for several unusual, delightful and fun-loving scenes. Below are some of the best videos from the day. The global wildlife video is above.
