The animals at Brookfield Zoo are keeping cool with frozen treats and ice cubes.

The bears got ice blocked filled with juice, berries, peanuts and raisins while the lions feasted on ice filled with meat. The polar bears preferred raspberries and blueberries in their cold, enjoyed while taking a dip in their pool.

Zoo officials also added water misting equipment to the animals' exhibits. Many of the animals took long, cool baths.
