Panda cub at National Zoo plays in snow for the first time

NOW: Panda cub at National Zoo plays in snow for the first time

The National Zoo shared video of their 16-month-old panda cub, Xiao Qi Ji, playing in the snow for the very first time on Monday.

The Washington DC zoo said that in 2021, the giant panda cub was a “little wary during his first encounter with snow.”

2022’s first snow day was a different story.

The zoo said the 16-month-old “plowed face-first into the fresh powder.”

A winter storm blanketed much of the nation's capital in snow on Monday, causing government offices and schools to close.
