Panda. Snow. Floof-play. Didn't take long on #Blizzard2016 weekend for this video to go viral.
Tian Tian, an adult giant panda bear who lives at Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, DC enjoys rolling around in the snow after a winter storm dumped nearly two feet of the white stuff in the region.
Tian Tian had a good time floofin' out in the snow, but not all the pandas felt the same way. Little baby Bei Bei, born in August 2015, wasn't feelin' it.
“Keepers said he wasn’t quite sure what to make of the powdery snow and made his way back inside quickly,” the zoo said on Instagram.
#BeiBei had his first introduction to snow today! Keepers took him outside to a small behind-the-scenes area to let him explore in a light dusting of snow for a few minutes while Mei Xiang ate her breakfast in her outdoor yard. Keepers said he wasn’t quite sure what to make of the powdery snow and made his way back inside quickly. #WeSaveSpecies
Giant pandas have thick woolly fur coats, perfect for keeping them warm even when rolling in snow, like Tian Tian. pic.twitter.com/nD8oHhYses— National Zoo (@NationalZoo) January 22, 2016
