The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC has a 16-month-old panda named Bao Bao. Being 16 months old, Bao Bao has never seen snow before. You can see where this is going.

Per the video description:

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.

Bao Bao is just one of the many animals at the National Zoo enjoying the wintry weather today, and the zoo is taking full advantage with a host of live webcams giving viewers constant access to the potential cuteness of lions, tigers, and panda bears (oh my!) playing in the snow.
