Giant pandas frolic in snow as they enjoy winter in China

There's nothing more adorable than a panda frolicking in the snow. Except, of course, two pandas.

In this incredibly cute video, two giant pandas climb, eat and show off their gymnastics moves in a nature reserve at Nanshan Park in Yantai, Shandong Province, China.

Comfortable in cold climates and at high altitudes, the duo, named Hua'ao and Qingfeng, entertain park visitors with somersaults and by showcasing their incredible flexibility.

The giant pandas were transferred to the park from the Wolong Nature Reserve in Sichuan province in May, according to 9news.com.

Despite efforts to revive the giant panda population, they remain extremely endangered. There are less than 2,500 giant pandas left in the wild and their natural habitat has shrunk by 50 percent in the last 20 years due to new development in China. (Source)
