It was all about new experiences as the youngest member of the panda family, Xiao Liwu, got to play in the snow for the first time at the San Diego Zoo on March 19, 2012, in San Diego, California. The seven-month-old cub explored his snowy exhibit and had fun climbing all over mom Bai Yun, playfully nipping and wrestling with her in the snow. More than 15 tons of fresh snow was blown into the panda's exhibit early this morning as part of an enrichment surprise for the pandas. UPI/Ken Bohn/San Diego Zoo

Patty, an endangered western lowland gorilla, is cradled by her mother Bana at the Lincoln Park Zoo on November 13, 2012 in Chicago. Patty was born in October, but guarded so closely by her mother that it took a month before the zoo's animal care staff to determine with certainty the infant was a female, announcing the results Tuesday.
