Video shows the elephants at the Reid Park Zoo playing as the snow fell Tuesday.



Zoo officials say the 8-month-old male Amur tiger cub is not in pain and makes the high-pitched sounds when he is trying to attract attention.



The zoo says the sounds resembling singing are unusual because tigers' vocal cords are not designed for such high notes.
