A Maryland man has challenged “Tian Tian” the panda to a snow battle… and the video associated with the challenge is hilarious!
Last week, following an epic blizzard along the East Coast, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute in Washington, D.C. shared a video of Tian Tian in pure “panda-monium” rolling around in the snow with awe and delight. The video of the 18-year-old, 264-pound panda made people smile all weekend long and has been shared more than 1.8 million times.
Tian Tian woke up this morning to a lot of snow...and he was pretty excited about it. #Blizzard2016Posted by Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute on Saturday, January 23, 2016
On Saturday, Facebook user Jeffrey Perez shared a video of himself dressed in a panda costume rolling around in the snow. The post is quickly going viral -- even Mark Zuckerberg has liked it! Perez's video has more than 1.7 million views, 18,000 shares and 3,000 likes.
