Bao Bao Plays with Snow

Keepers took advantage of the snow at the Zoo Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, and did some special enrichment with Bao Bao. Since she’s not quite ready to go outside and play in the snow yet, they brought the snow to her. Her reaction was “lukewarm to the cold snow,” said Brandie Smith, senior curator and curator of giant pandas. Bao Bao put her paws and nose in the bucket of snow keepers brought inside the panda house for her, but after a few minutes she moved on to explore other things.
