From the National Zoo’s Facebook page:

“Keepers took advantage of the snow at the Zoo this morning and did some special enrichment with Bao Bao. Since she’s not quite ready to go outside and play in the snow yet, they brought the snow to her! Her reaction was “lukewarm to the cold snow.” She put her paws and nose in the bucket of snow keepers brought inside the panda house for her, but after a few minutes she moved on to explore other things – which isn’t unexpected since everything is new to her right now.”

Ed. Note: Bao Bao will be shown to the public starting Jan. 18th.
