WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington is closed, but a video of one of the zoo’s four pandas enjoying the snow there is making a lot of people smile.
The video was posted on the zoo’s Facebook page and on Twitter on Saturday morning. It shows 18-year-old, 264-pound panda Tian Tian rolling in the snow, throwing it on himself and lying on his back almost as if he’s making a snow angel. The caption on the video reads: “Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow, and he was pretty excited about it.”
By 1 p.m. Saturday, the video had been viewed 7.5 million times on Facebook and shared more than 440,000 times. It had been re-Tweeted about 80,000 times.
