This past weekend's massive blizzard that brought epic amounts of snow to Washington D.C. and cities across the US East Coast had most people and animals scrambling for the safety of their homes. However, one of National Zoo's most beloved residents, Tian Tian was not amongst them.

For the adult giant panda, the over 20-inches of snow that blanketed the ground was a treat he rarely gets to enjoy. In a video released by zoo officials, the fuzzy black and white animal is seen frolicking in the soft white powder with such joy that it will tempt you to do the same. However, his six-month son Bei Bei, who experienced his first snow, was not as thrilled! Though he did tentatively step onto the white flurries, the panda cub did not seem to enjoy it as much. Maybe his dad can teach him a trick or two!
