-- Bei Bei is moving up in the world.
The Smithsonian National Zoo’s baby panda experienced the outdoors for the first time last week and now the nearly six-month-old cub is scaling trees—-with the help of his mom Mei Xiang, of course. The Washington DC based Zoo posted a video of the feat online this morning, noting that it took Bei Bei a few tries before he was able to climb up one of the trees in his outdoor habitat.
Last Thursday, the zoo posted a video of Bei Bei’s first steps outside, when he attempted to climb a tree but got stuck on a low branch.
Bei Bei is the only baby Panda at the zoo and was born in August.
