Giant pandas frolic in the snow

Female panda Mei Xiang and male Tian Tian enjoyed the first snowstorm of the season in a big way. The Zoo's Panda Cam caught the panda pair sliding down hills and raising their arms in excitement.

The pair's cub, five-month-old Xiao Qi Ji, briefly braved the snow but gave the fluffy white precipitation a chilly reception.

According to the Zoo's website, the pandas are on loan from the China Wildlife and Conservation Association through 2023.
