Pandas are used to seeing snow since they live in high altitudes, but for these two, it seems to be an especially welcome treat.Two of China's giant pandas were quite excited yesterday, after they got a taste of snow that covered Nanshan Park in Yantai, Shandong Province. While the winter weather should be nothing new for the endangered species, they were quick to get creative with it.The pandas' feeders say they were just having loads of fun.[Ma Rong, Panda Feeder, Nanshan Park]:"They get particularly excited when they see snow. Sometimes they like to roll a snow-house and hide inside. They also lump the snow together again and again and again until they make small snowballs. And then they eat the snowballs as if they're having ice cream."In light of the reaction from the two pandas, caretakers have decided to let the snow sit a bit longer in their habitat.
