Playful Panda Cub Tumbles Down Snowy Hill

Bao Bao, the one-year-old giant panda cub, got to experience and play in snow for the first time when a fresh blanket of snow covered his outdoor enclosure at Smithsonian’s National Zoo.

“As the year’s first blanket of snow coated the Washington, D.C. area today, giant panda Bao Bao spent much of the morning playing in it for the very first time. The sixteen month-old panda cub tumbled down the hill in her outdoor enclosure, climbed trees and pounced on her mother Mei Xiang. Our great cats, seals and wolves also enjoyed the wintry weather.”
