Delightful Giant Pandas Enjoy the First Snow Sliding and Frolicking With Pure Joy

Everyone gets excited when they wake up one morning and see that the whole surface s covered by that nice layer of fluffy snow. We rush to go outside and have some fun on that fresh powder, but as it turns out our furry friends love it too.

The zookeepers at Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute in Washington, D.C. shared several videos of their fluffy and feathery residents enjoying the occasion, but the two adorable giant pandas Mei Xiang and Tian Tian totally stole the spotlight with their excitement of playing in snow.

In the video, the panda bears are super playful as they slide down the hill on their backs. However, it wasn’t just the giant pandas who got a kick out of this winter holiday. Red pandas Asa and Chris-Anne had a ball pawing through the snow in search of yummy treats, and some of the Przewalski’s horses took a leisurely stroll through the white pastures.
