Yantai, China -- Days of heavy snow has brought happy moments to two giant pandas in a park in Yantai, Shandong Province.

The giant pandas, Hua'ao and Qingfeng, were sent to Nanshan Park from Wolong Nature Reserve in Sichuan Province in May.

Enjoying the snowfall, the two played with each other, sometimes rolling on the ground, climbing the hen roost or standing on their heads.

Pandas live in cold areas at an altitude ranging between 1800 to 2300 meters above sea level, with snow being a part of their original ecological environment.

"Huaao and Qingfeng feel very excited as long as they see any snowfall. Sometimes they like to roll a snow-house and hide themselves inside. And then eat the snow just like eating ice-creams," said Ma Rong, a feeder at Nanshan Park.
