Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Google is celebrating the start of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games with an animated, Doodle video.
Google's homepage features a play button located in the middle of its logo that when clicked will present a Winter Games-themed video featuring animals taking part in different Olympic events -- including a snake is competing in an ice-skating competition and a group of dogs skiing down a mountain.
The video announces Google's Doodle Snow Games which will include 17 animations that will be released everyday on Google's homepage until the end of the Winter Olympics on Feb. 25, CNET reported.
"It looks like the whole animal kingdom has turned out to watch the excitement unfold over the next two weeks! Who will be leaping, crawling or slithering home a hero? Will Snake shed the runner-up title and land the first ever single-footed triple-axel? Will Dog collar the win on the ruff slopes? Will Penguin's webbed feats earn the audience's affection or face an icy reception?" Google says alongside the clip.
"One thing's for sure: the journey alone is a wild opportunity for most of these koala-fied critters! Big or small, win or lose, new friendships are bound to crystallize before the end of the games."
