SEE IT: Panda Yuan Yuan sends 7-month-old daughter cub to bed 

Yuan Zai slowly crept out of her room at the Taipei Zoo when her mother spotted her and dragged her back to bed. The cub was born on July 6.

Even pandas have bed times.

An adorable online video shows giant panda Yuan Yuan putting her baby cub Yuan Zai to bed recently at the Taipei Zoo in Taiwan.

Cameras in the zoo’s Panda House show Yuan Zai — whose name van be translated to mean “Yuan Yuan’s child” or literally the “the little round thing” — slowly sliding down a hall into a common area with a mischievous smirk on her face.

She was crawling on her stomach as if to avoid detection.

Yuan Yuan sees her daughter and walks over to put her back. She first grabs her by the neck using her mouth, and then cradles her and carries her back to her bed.

The baby did not seem happy, but couldn’t put up much of a fight.

Yuan Zai, who was born on July 6, probably needs her rest as her family is the biggest attraction at the zoo.

The zoo can accomodate up to 19,000 people a day to come and see the panda family, which also includes father Tuan Tuan.

SEE IT: Panda has fun in snow at Toronto Zoo 

The zoo captured Da Mao playing in the snow and taking a few adorable tumbles. The panda moved to the zoo from China in May.

Panda Da Mao was captured having fun in the snow at the Toronto Zoo.

A young panda still has to adjust to those Toronto winters.

The Toronto Zoo released a video of its 5-year-old panda Da Mao, who was captured having some difficulty with the snow in his habitat.

The zoo closed early on Wednesday, but that didn’t stop one of the zoo’s two pandas from being out and about in the snow — though he did have a few adorable missteps.

Maria Franke, the zoo’s curator of mammals, told the Toronto Star Da Mao loves the weather.

"He loves the snow even more when it’s fresh and it’s actually snowing," she said. “He makes his own luge track, his own toboggan hill. He should be in the Olympics.”

Since that’s the case, it’s a good thing the panda didn’t stay in China. The country actually had an unusual snow drought this season, as the first snow finally fell just last Thursday.

It was the third -longest winter stretch without snow on record in Beijing’s recorded history, reported the South China Morning Post.

Baby polar bear cubs in Canada captured with pictures 

Wildlife photographer Thomas Kokta, of Issaquah Wash., had the rare opportunity to catch the three bears playing in the wilderness of Manitoba Canada.

A lucky photographer has managed to photograph these adorable images that of the playful first moments in the lives of young polar bear cubs.

It is believed less than 500 people have been lucky enough to witness baby polar bears when they emerge from their dens in the wild.

But wildlife snapper Thomas Kokta, from Issaquah in Washington, USA, has been shooting polar bear families for the past few years carefully learning their first moves.

Thomas, who travels to Manitoba, Canada, to locate these families, has witnessed not only the cuteness of baby polar bears firsthand, but also the extremely rare phenomenon of a mother bear that has given birth to surviving triplets.

Polar bears triplets are extremely rare, as one of the three cubs tends not to survive through the early months.

But the family he located appeared playful and healthy - they even managed to pose for a family portrait-style shot, with some of the cute cubs resting on the mum’s back.

Thomas admits his love of polar bear photography also comes with its challenges - the temperatures he endures range from -15C to -50C and it’s almost impossible for vehicles to get close to such families.

Baby polar bears also sleep for long periods of time, so there is a lot of waiting around in the cold, which has left him close to catching frostbite on a number of occasions.

He said: “I now have thousands of pictures of polar bears as I have spent more than six months photographing them.

"I’ve been fortunate enough to see triplets, babies climb trees and I have many, many pictures of the cubs pulling goofy poses.

"People always seem to think the baby pictures are cute, but it is hard to relate to how much effort goes into shooting these shots - it’s cold, remote and there is a lot of waiting around."
