Video: Pandas at San Diego Zoo treated with a winter wonderland


Winter has come early for a group of pandas at San Diego Zoo in California after their enclosure was filled with snow.

The snow has been specially created and was brought into the zoo for the pandas. The treat is part of an enrichment programme to stimulate them and keep them curious about their environment.

It seems to be effective as the pandas can be seen playing in the snow and exploring it.
