Tian Tian at Smithsonian National Zoo Enjoys Snow from Blizzard 2016

Posted on January 23, 2016

A dangerous blizzard struck the northeast U.S. this weekend dumping records amounts of snow in several major cities. Washington D.C. was one of the cities pummeled by the blizzard but it didn't face Tian Tian at the Smithsonian National Zoo. He was loving the snow.

The zoo says, "Male giant panda Tian Tian (tee-YEN tee-YEN) woke up this morning to a lot of snow, and he was pretty excited about it. Giant pandas have thick woolly coats that keep them warm in the snowy mountains of China."
