WATCH: Man in Panda Suit Challenges 'Tian Tian' to Snow Battle

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. #Blizzard2016
