Giant Panda Finds Snow Absolutely Delightful

Da Mao somersaults, rolls around, and generally frolics in a frenzy of snow appreciation.

The weather is getting colder, the streets are getting snowier and saltier, and the number of daylight hours is shrinking: if you find yourself despairing about any of these things, or counting the weeks until spring (there are many, many weeks until spring), we recommend you watch giant panda Da Mao revel in yesterday’s snowfall at the Toronto Zoo.

He turns somersaults; he toboggans down a hill without a toboggan; he puts some snow in his mouth. Even if you do not want to do anything of those things, it can be therapeutic to watch a large, furry creature delighting in the cold, fluffy white stuff.
