Please Enjoy Watching These Pandas Frolic In The Snow (GIFs)

Pandas are adorable roly poly creatures, and this fact is only heightened when it snows. The National Zoo released a video over the weekend of giant pandas Tian Tian and Mei Xiang rolling around and sliding in the snow in their habitats in Washington D.C. Only about 2 or 3 inches of snow fell, but that was more than enough for the pandas to have a great snow day. Enjoy the GIFs below, and if you're after more cute animal stories, check out these cute dwarf giraffes

Giant Panda Cub Gets Named And Its A True 'Little Miracle'

We've an update about one of the most positive stories to come out of 2020, and the update is just as wholesome as the original story. The (tiny) giant panda cub that was born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo three weeks ago has finally gotten a name, and it is the most appropriate and cutest name of all. Xiao Qi Ji is his name in Chinese, but it translates to 'little miracle' in English. 

The little giant panda has gone absolutely viral in the past couple of weeks after a video of his miraculous birth was released by the zoo, and since the world fell in love with the cub, the zoo decided to let the world participate in naming him. Of course, the internet does not disappoint when it comes to baby animals. 

We were given a choice of 4 names, and after three weeks and nearly 135,000 votes that have been cast, the adorable name 'little miracle' was chosen. The long waiting period was not an accident, it is part of Chinese tradition to wait 100 days before naming the cub. We wish the little cub luck and prosperity, and for his mother, Mei Xiang, to have many more adorable healthy cubs in the future!

A huge congrats to the attentive and caring mother, Mei Xiang! 

According to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the moment the cub was born on August 21st, Mei Xiang picked up the newborn cub and immediately began to cradle and care for it. Just like any loving and devoted mother would. 

Animal care staff heard the cub vocalize and were able to catch a glimpse of the newborn. As of now, the team is monitoring Mei Xiang and her cub via the Zoo's panda cams. From what the team has observed so far, the panda cub appears to be strong and healthy.

Panda Express announced today that it is considering using a new utensil called a "Chork" in it's restaurant locations, despite having a name that sounds like what happens when you eat too much Panda Express:

"Don't step there... I just chorked out my beef with broccoli."







It's a half-chopstick, half-fork contraption that could either fling plastic bits into your mouth, or make shovelling General Tso's into your gullet waaay easier...


Either way, the internet agrees the name is just stupid...

While Tuesday’s snow may have ruined your day, the sixteen month-old cub seemed to really enjoy it. The little ball of fur tumbled around in the white stuff and wrestled her mother Mei Xiang.

And she wasn’t the only one amused by the storm. Here are some lion cubs tackling each other and a gray seal shoving its nose into the snow.
