VIDEO: panda cub Xiao Qi Ji celebrates his birthday!

On Sunday, August 21st, the newest giant panda cub at the National Zoo turned 2 years old! So to celebrate, the Zoo's Department of Nutrition Sciences created a special fruitsicle cake for Xiao featuring the foods he loves the most: sweet potato, sugar cane, apple, banana, pear and, of course bamboo! (Did you know that giant pandas eat anywhere from 26 to 84 pounds of bamboo a DAY?! Golly!)

You can watch the birthday boy enjoying his treat below!

And TODAY is the 7th birthday of Bei Bei, the panda that left the Zoo for China back in 2019.

Both birthdays come as our Zoo marks 50 years of panda conservation efforts!
