Man In Panda Suit Challenges Real Panda To Snow Battle

U.S. cities dealing with a blizzard this past weekend may have found a bit of relief watching Smithsonian National Zoo's giant panda Tian Tian roll around in a heaping amount of snow.

But one Maryland man, Jeffrey Perez, is taking rolling around to a new level — in fact, he's challenging the blizzard-loving panda to a snow battle.

Posting an Instagram video dressed up in a panda suit, Perez hilariously mimics Tian Tian's movements, from throwing snow into the air to trying to put his foot into his mouth.

Perez told ABC News when the weather gets better, he plans to wear his panda suit and take his family to see the giant panda in person.

We really see these two hitting it off.

Watch the full video of both pandas in action above.
