Video Captures Mama Panda Helping Bei Bei the Cub Climb a Tree for the First Time
The National Zoo's beloved baby pandas are a bottomless well overflowing with adorable viral videos.
In his newest gift to the panda-loving masses, the zoo's newest giant panda, Bei Bei, gets stuck while climbing a tree for the first time.
Notching the cuteness level up even higher, Bei Bei's mama, Mei Xiang, who was standing anxiously by all along, then helps the five-month-old cub down to safety.
All this darling charm from the very same animal that gave us a groggy public debut.
Meanwhile, it was Bei Bei's zoo roommate Tian Tian that nearly broke the internet during January's East Coast blizzard when he rolled happily down a snowy hill.
Bei Bei is one of four pandas in residence at the National Zoo, including mother Mei Xiang, adult male Tian Tian and Bei Bei's two-year-old sister Bao Bao.
