According to WLWT, Mr. Claus visited the attraction Monday to give holiday gifts and treats to the animals, including the hippos, meerkats and red pandas. He also brought tiny, adorable clothes for the naked mole rats, the zoo said in a news release.

“It was so thoughtful of Santa to bring clothes to the naked mole rats, but they don’t actually need any help to keep warm,” Mandy Pritchard, the zoo’s insect team leader, said in a statement. “Their habitat is kept nice and toasty since they come from the deserts of East Africa. If they do get a little chilly, they prefer to cuddle together in big piles!”

A video that shows Santa delivering the miniature outfits quickly made the rounds on Facebook. By Tuesday morning, the clip had received more than 34,000 views and more than 1,600 reactions.
