For his second birthday, Bei Bei the panda won’t have to celebrate alone.
Bei Bei, the panda cub on loan to the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington, D.C., celebrated his second birthday Tuesday with a special frozen cake filled with pears, apples, carrots and sweet potatoes.
After an afternoon filled with festivities, the birthday cub enjoyed a nap.
Across the globe, Nuan Nuan, a cub born at Malaysia's Giant Panda Conservation Center, also celebrated turning 2 years old Wednesday.
Her dad Xing Xing and mom Liang Liang, both 11, enjoyed treats with Nuan Nuan while on display.
After her birthday, zookeepers will begin preparing Nuan Nuan for transport to Chengdu, China, as a part of China’s panda policy.
