Video: See Finland's new pandas enjoying the snow

Rolling in the snow and climbing a tree were clearly expressions of the joy of being allowed outside for the first time since arriving in Finland last month.

Chinese giant pandas unveiled to public in Finland

Hua Bao, a 4-year-old male, and 3-year-old female Jin Baobao arrived in Finland on Jan. 18 and were immediately renamed Pyry ("Snowfall") and Lumi ("Snow") in Finnish. The Ahtari Zoo, 330 kilometers (205 miles) north of Helsinki, built a special Panda House annex for the pair.

China agreed to loan the pandas for 15 years as a gift to Finland, which celebrated 100 years of independence from Russia last year.

China has presented pandas to countries as a sign of goodwill and closer political ties, with Finland being the first Nordic nation to receive them.

Those pandas are not too far from here. We need to go check them out. Maybe we can bring Mason hyper.gif He'd love it there! It's about a two hour drive.
