Shaun White seems to be having fun off the mountain in Sochi, according to a video he recently posted of his trip to the zoo this weekend. The U.S. Olympic snowboarder is seen checking out wolves and bison and boars, laughing and touching the animals’ noses in the one-minute video.

White is slated to make his debut appearance in the Sochi Games in the men’s halfpipe competition on Feb. 11. He made headlines early in the Games after deciding to pull out of the slopestyle competition to focus full-time on the halfpipe event.
