WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Officials at the National Zoo in Washington said they brought some snow inside for panda cub Bao Bao to play with, but her response to the cold was "lukewarm."

Senior Curator Brandie Smith said Bao Bao is still too young to play outside in the snow, so zookeepers brought some inside for her to play with, WUSA-TV, Washington, reported Monday.

Smith said Bao Bao's feelings seemed to be "lukewarm to the cold snow." She said the cub quickly lost interest in the frozen precipitation.
