Snow Day for Xiao Liwu at San Diego Zoo

Today may be the first day of Spring, but yesterday March 19, Panda cub Xiao Liwu and mom Bai Yun ran around, played and enjoyed the snow provided by the San Diego Zoo, through the help of generous donors. It was Xiao Liwu's first time seeing the snow, and after a little hesitation he stepped onto the cold surface and began to enjoy play time with his mother. As is snows in China, the Pandas are a bit spoiled with the nice Southern California weather. It is a real treat for the Pandas to play in an inherently familiar setting.

Xiao Liwu was born in July of 2012, the 6th Panda cub to be born at the San Diego Zoo, thanks to a 12-year research loan from China.

You can see Xiao Liwu, Ban Yun and the other Pandas live through San Diego Zoo Panda Cam.  Become a member of San Diego Zoo Wildlife Conservancy here.
