In many places around the country, someone has forgotten to tell Mother Nature that it's not even Thanksgiving yet.

Take Buffalo, for instance. That northern New York city received nearly seven feet of snow last week. Yes, SEVEN FEET OF SNOW!

It was enough to drive its citizens to drink and its football team to play a "home" game in Detroit.

Fortunately, the good folks at the Toronto Zoo are here to make this early winter a little less awful, as they've released a video of a panda named De Mao "bear-bogganing," gliding around in his man-made environment and loving life in the snow.

Probably because he isn't being forced to play in Detroit...

When one is feeling down, panda bears are often useful animals.

They're pretty much guaranteed to turn a frown upside down, especially when being freaked out by a squirrel or sneezing in front of its mother.

For many years now, human beings at SeaWorld and other similar theme parks, have paid money to watch dolphins do tricks.

In the following video, however, these roles are reversed... to adorable results!

The footage features a young woman dancing, twirling and tumbling, all to the extreme delight of this mammal on display.

Watch below as at least one dolphin clearly stops swimming around and takes notice of the talented girl, even cracking a smile in the process:

And don't write in, scientists, to tell us that dolphins can't actually smile. We know what we saw, okay?!?

Earlier this week, we posted a video of a cat trying to jump from the roof of one vehicle through the (closed) window of another vehicle.

Needless to say, it did not go well for the feline.

But at least that animal actually made it to his destination.

The following footage features a ferret (who is wearing a glow-in-the-dark piece of jewelry and apparently hanging out at a home rave) who really wants to leap from the table to the ironing board.

He readies himself. He bends his legs a few times. And then he doesn't come anywhere close to accomplish his goal.

SPLAT!

The animal kingdom has lost one of its best known.

Network sources have confirmed the passing of Jovian, a lemur who starred as Zoboo on PBS’ hit nature series Zoboomafoo. He died on Monday at the age of 20.

Jovian Photo

From 1999 to 2001, Jovian appeared opposite Zoboomafoo hosts (and real-life brothers) Chris and Martin Kratt, yukking it up and becoming a small screen sensation.

“He was very social and calm,” Martin Kratt wrote on Facebook of his former co-star. “He was young and good-looking and very gentle."

Yup. Now we've seen it all.

Following the trends of Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus and many others, an unnamed turtle is making the viral rounds today because he's making the most of his bath time.

BY TWERKING! 

The creature is moving and grooving in footage set, appropriately, to Jason Derulo's "Wiggle." 

We doubt this animal can make $100,000 per year by Twerking, but, hey, not everyone is in this for the money. Some just do it for the love of dance.

Good news, dogs of the world:

You aren't the only animals to get freaked out by the unexpected presence of a squirrel.

In the following video, filmed at the Toronto Zoo, a panda named Er Shun is peacefully taking a name on a log pile in her enclosure (dreaming of some delicious bamboo, we presume) when she gets jolted awake by a quick-darting squirrel.

It makes its move and then immediately runs back away, confusing Er Shun for a few moments before the panda settles back in for more sleep. Watch now:

Squirrels, of course, can be as funny as they are scary.

Remember this footage of a squirrel being thwarted by Vasoline? Or this footage of a devastated squirrel dropping a nut way down to the ground?

Ever wondered what it would be like to see two kangaroos brawl in the street, while simultaneously listening to a classical piece of music?

Well, thanks to Rodney Langham, you need not wonder any longer!

This Australian resident has posted a video that features a pair of animals who are apparently hopping mad (get i?!?) at each other.

He's set the footage to Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker and he's watched as it's racked up over 2.2 million views on YouTube because... who would NOT want to watch two kangaroos going at it on an otherwise quiet street?

In other semi-related news, remember this kangaroo who got lost inside an airport?

Back in July, we shared the story of a miniature horse and a dog who are surprise best friends.

Now, it's time to meet Acer, a miniature horse who believes himself to be a dog!

According to his owner Maureen O’Sullivan, Acer suffers from a condition called Dwarfism. As a result, he’s only 22 inches tall.

But the three-year-old isn’t letting this abnormality slow him down. He's determined to live life to the fullest... as a canine!

Acer goes for walks on a leash. He plays around in the field. He's also permitted to occasionally wander into the family home. 

Taking Horse for a Walk

Oh, and did we mention that he’s also the ideal size for cuddling?

What's an even better way to prepare for the changing of the seasons than pumpkin spice latte?

How about video of two little girls playing around in a leaf pile? Not good enough? Consider this:

Two little girls playing around in a leaf pile... with a baby deer!

That's exactly what the following footage depicts and it's just as adorable as you might imagine. Let's just hope the kids' parents checked them for ticks afterward and let's just sit back and get ready for the fall with the help of this unexpected play date:

The only thing missing from this cute video?

Butch, the Siberian Husky who loves to play with leaves more than we love anything in the entire world. Perhaps the girls and the fawn can invite him along next time.

Consider yourselves warned, THG readers:

The following photo gallery and subsequent video may cause an end to all productivity for you today.

That’s because they feature two female cheetahs who were born on September 1 at the San Diego Zoo, with that famous establishment announcing the news on Facebook and noting that each birth is "precious" because there are only 12,000 cheetahs left in the world.

These three-week olds are being hand-raised by the animal care staff because their mother couldn't raise her previous litter properly. They only weigh three pounds each at the moment.

But that isn't stopping the sisters from playing with each other and making us squeal in delight.

Cheetahs at Play
These two cheetahs were just born at the San Diego Zoo. We could watch this GIF all day long, couldn't you?

"Every baby's different, but these cheetahs really seem to be developing quickly in our eyes," says Eileen Neff, lead keeper of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. "They are great eaters, they started playing when they were just three or four days old. They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."
