A video of a giant panda fighting a snowman took the internet by storm. Da Mao, a panda from the Toronto Zoo, decided to face off against a snowman that consisted of two snowballs. Zookeepers built the snow figure to please the animal. The video of the fierce fight was viewed more than 2.5 million times.
At first, Da Mao was clawing at the snowman’s torso, and then the panda climbed on the unfortunate snow figure and perched right on its head. After that, the animal lost its balance, fell down and got conked in the face by the snowman’s head as it fell to the ground.
The giant herbivorous mammal made several more attempts to climb on the decapitated enemy, but repeatedly fell, showing both perseverance and flexibility.
Da Mao is the male of a pair of pandas that arrived in Toronto from China as part of a conservation breeding program. Two panda cubs, Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue, were born to Da Mao and Er Shun in October 2015.
