The Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute in Washington, D.C., tweeted the video right after they listed some facts for their followers: “Giant pandas have thick woolly fur coats, perfect for keeping them warm even when rolling in snow, like Tian Tian.”

In the video, the panda is shown rolling around in the snow and throwing the white stuff in his face. Tian Tian’s baby, Bei Bei, wasn’t so keen on the snow and didn’t stay outside for long. The 265-pound male giant panda slid down a small hill, and rolled around in the snow. Tian Tian, who is 19 years old, was born in China and was born to his mother panda Mei Xiang’s on Aug. 22.
