The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden knows how to warm your heart on even the coldest day.
The zoo posted a video of its two resident red pandas frolicking in the snow and their glee is almost enough to remind snowbound residents to go outside and play instead of watching The Shining again.
The video was taken by zookeeper Lissa Browning and shows Lin, a 2-year-old female, and Rover, a 9-year-old male, cavorting in their snow-covered pen. Red pandas are used to cold weather as they are natives of the Himalayas and it’s clear they love romping in the snow.
As people continue to dig out from the winter storms that have buried much of the Midwest and East Coast of the United States in snow, this video serves as a good reminder that winter can actually be fun.
