Watch: This Panda Playing In The Snow Is All You Need

Watch: This Panda Playing In The Snow Is All You Need

On foot of all that talk about the snowy blizzard that is #WinterStormJonas, here is one fluffy creature who won’t be deterred by a few frosty flakes. As a matter of fact, a panda named? Tian Tian got to experience the wonder of snow for the very first time and he LOVED it.

?Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow, and he was pretty excited about it,? an account for the National Zoo tweeted. Users were instantly taken with the happy-go-lucky creature and in the first five hours alone, the post was retweeted over 100,000 times.?

The panda and his baby cub BeiBei are from the Nation Zoo in Washington DC, and both got to frolic in the?cold conditions. ?While Tian revered in snowy delight (just look at the below video for proof), his cub wasn’t so’sure:

Giant pandas are naturally accustomed to blizzard conditions. Their native mountainous habitat in central China receives regular snowfall. Some scientists think pandas evolved white fur as wintertime camouflage. And thankfully for us, pandas make no attempt to hide their equally adorable snow dancing as Tian does below.

Happy Sunday.

Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow…and he was pretty excited about it. #Blizzard2016
