Baby panda climbs too high, needs help from mom to get down
UPI News Service, 02/09/2016
The National Zoo in Washington shared video of 5-month-old panda Bei Bei's struggle to get back to earth after climbing a tree too high for his comfort.
The Smithsonian's National Zoo posted a video to Facebook of the panda cub, who ventured out into his outdoor enclosure for the first time earlier this month, finding himself in a precarious situation after climbing too high in a tree.
The curious cub clings to his perch for several moments until mamma bear Mei Xiang arrives to help him out of the situation.
The mother panda places her head under Bei Bei's backside and uses her front paws to help guide him down from the tree.
