ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Temperatures are still frigid and it's affecting the number of people braving the weather at the zoo.

 It’s no doubt that Mother Nature has been a bear.

Many area businesses have been feeling Mother Nature’s cold wrath and the St. Louis Zoo is no different.

But with Dave saying the temperatures will be changing. The zoo hopes the outdoor area will be buzzing once again.

The flamingos, African antelope and other species have been moved indoors because of these cold temperatures.

 The sea lions like to stay underwater where it's a balmy 45 degrees and they're not alone.

Most of the water fowl such as geese and pelicans have "hay beds" to help keep them warm and if the water is not frozen.

They’ll keep their feet in the water because the water is warmer than the air outside. 

But with hope of warmer weather on the horizon the zoo is gearing up with their Delta Dental "Winter Zoo" Celebrations.

The party starts at 11am and lasts until 4pm every Sunday. Admission is free. There will be goodie bags, games and prizes.
