CUTE ALERT! This gorgeous 16-month-old panda cub thinks snow is just the best!
After seeing snow for the first time on Jan. 6, Bao Bao started rolling around in it, and tumbling downhill to frolic with her mom Mei Xiang.
The pair live at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. According to its Facebook page, Bao Bao “was quite the little snow panda.
She spent her morning tumbling down the hill in her yard, climbing and sliding down trees and pouncing on her mom.
The zoo got several inches of white stuff that day as Washington experienced its first snowfall this winter.
Bao Bao is already an online celebrity, and can be viewed via a special Pandacam. She has had many adventures inside the pen, including an unfortunate one last month when she hid up a tree for hours after touching an electrified “hot wire.”
Pandas are well-suited to snowy winters with their thick coats, and wild pandas experience icy temperatures in their natural mountain habitat in China.
