Watching the flakes fall, Mei Xiang, one of two giant pandas at the US National Zoo takes time to enjoy the year's first snowfall in Washington, January 22, 2005. Giant pandas are native to central China where snow is common in the winter, making Mei Xiang and her mate Tian Tian feel right at home when the white stuff starts to fall. Giant pandas are endangered in the wild, with an estimated 1,600 left in the wild. [AP]
