On Thursday, the Smithsonian National Zoo posted a video that shows a male panda taking a bubble bath on his own.
The panda named “Tian Tian” can’t seem to get enough of the suds as he rubbed them all over his ears from a tub. Also, he tried to fit himself in the small tub, and well, he seemed to have succeeded.
Tian Tian means “more and more.”
The video was posted on YouTube has a caption:
Rub-a-dub-dub Tian Tian in a tub! Keepers provided him a tub of water with non-toxic bubble bath soap. He really soaked it up. He rubbed it on his ears—which is called scent-anointing. (Wait for the tail wiggle!) Pandas do not bathe regularly in the wild, but when Tian Tian is in rut—meaning he’s exhibiting behaviors associated with breeding season—he especially likes to play in water. #PandaStory
Isn’t he the cutest? :)
