Video: Panda cub Bao Bao plays in the snow for the first time


The first snow of the season hit Washington, D.C. Tuesday, causing major delays during the morning rush hour and resulting in a snow day for some local students and government workers. But while the snow caused headaches for commuters, for others it was a day for play — including the 16-month-old panda cub Bao Bao.

The video released by the Smithsonian National Zoo shows her tumbling (or purposefully summersaulting?) down a hill, climbing trees, and pouncing on her mother, Mei Xiang.

Be prepared, this video is highly addicting and hits “overload” on the cute-o-meter scale.
