WASHINGTON D.C. – Residents in Washington D.C. may be staying home during this snowy day, but Bao Bao is outside, having the time of her life.

The giant panda cub at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington D.C. played in the show for the first time today.

Zoo officials say the 16-month-old panda, Bao Bao (pronounced bow-BOW), spent her morning tumbling down the hill in her yard, climbing and sliding down trees and pouncing on her mom, Mei Xiang.

According to the zoo, animals who enjoy the cold had access to go outdoors and those who need warmth stayed in their indoor habits.
