Bei Bei the panda is one of the newest additions to the National Zoo, and his trainers are teaching him some basics moves. Watch the video for a look behind the scenes of a school field trip or DC guided tour to the National Zoo.

The trainers can only capture Bei Bei’s attention for about 10 or 15 minutes at a time. Similar in age and temperament to a human toddler, Bei Bei has a short attention span and often prefers to play more than anything else. The trainers handle this lack of participation in stride and conduct each lesson for a few minutes at a time.

Come see the National Zoo’s new panda with Haymarket Transportation. We offer customized tours, as well as sightseeing tours in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. Our transportation services are available at 301-778-2007.
