Tian Tian the panda is still loving that snow

Another video has been released of Tian Tian the panda really loving that snow.

Once again we see the Smithsonian Zoo’s most famous resident frolicking in the white powder that arrived thanks to Storm Jonas.

The zoo first shared a video of Tian Tian playing in the snow on January 23, which has already earned nearly two million views online.

Tian Tian the panda loves the snow

Sadly though the giant panda won’t be able to enjoy the snow for long though, as the zoo plans to clear it for visitors.

Accompanying the video on Instagram, the zoo wrote: “#TianTian is still rolling in the snow, but we're still clearing it for visitors! The Zoo will be closed Jan. 26 while we continue to clear roadways and pathways for humans. #Blizzard2016”

The Washington DC zoo’s giant panda habitat is home to four of the bears, including Tian Tian (adult male), Mei Xiang (adult female), Bao Bao (juvenile female), and a male cub named Bei Bei.

Storm Jonas brought both the US capital and New York to a standstill over the weekend, as the blizzard brought more than two feet of snow, causing 11 states to declare a state of emergency.
