Bao Bao has a blast on her very first snow day

We know of one familiar face who didn't mind the snow one bit: D.C.'s beloved giant panda-- Bao Bao.

As the year's first blanket of snow coated the area Tuesday, Bao Bao spent much of the morning playing in it for the very first time. The 16-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.
