Pandas are well conditioned to snow in their native environment — we know that. But this one simply loves it. In fact, he seems to have discovered a new winter sport which I’m pretty sure will have plenty of human fans.
This awesome video was shared with us by Toronto Zoo which gives us these details:
During today’s snowfall, our cameras caught giant panda Da Mao ‘bear-bogganing’ in his outdoor exhibit. Perhaps he’s discovered a new winter sport?
It is so funny to see just how awkward this panda looks as it tumbles down his hill over and over again. And then, after skidding all the way down, he walked up the hill and tumbles down again.
The 6-year-old star of the video is on loan to Toronto Zoo from China and is expected to stay at the zoo until 2018.
This is not the first time Da Mao’s snow antics have drawn attention. He was also seen practicing his trademark tumble downhill in a February clip released by the zoo (see below).
And here is Da Mao’s February clip:
