THIS giant panda looks to be enjoying the snowy weather as it sticks out its tongue to catch snowflakes.

The bear at Pairi Daiza Animal Park in Belgium did not seem to feel the cold and rolled around in its enclosure on Monday when temperatures dropped to as low as -8 degrees.

Twins Bao Di and Bao Mei were born at the zoo in August 2019 so this is the first time they have seen snow.

Giant pandas have thick fur which is well-suited to their cold and rainy natural habitat in the forests of southwest China.

Keepers wondered how they would react to the ice — but they eat shoots and freeze.
