Despite temperatures reaching as low as -50'C (-58'F), the Orto-Doido zoo in the Siberian city of Yakutsk in the Sakha Republic remained open to visitors as the animals are mostly native to Siberia.

Used to freezing temperatures, some of the animals on display included polar bears, bisons, lynx, wolves and even the Amur tiger.

Yakutsk is commonly known as the coldest city on Earth, with temperatures reaching as low as -60'C in winter and remaining below zero until April.
