In the San Diego Zoo, an adorable baby panda named Xiao Liwu is introduced to a ball for the first time as part of his 18thexam.

Caretakers give the ball to him in order to test his coordination and to encourage him to play with new objects.

Little Xiao Liwu was amused by his new toy ball and tried his best to hold onto it. But the little panda constantly lost his balance as he rolled around on the ball. This just means that his coordination needs wee more work.

He was also given some bamboo and tree limb for the same purpose. As he had never seen these before, he wasn’t as excited about those objects as he was with the large ball. A caretaker pretends to hold onto the ball at one point, but little Xiao Liwu loves it too much to give it up! He holds on to it for dear life.

The caretakers return the ball right back at him, every time it rolled away. He quickly grabs the ball again with apparent glee, trying his best not to let it slip away this time. It’s obvious to everyone that Xiao Liwu loves his new toy. He’s having the best time ever!

Needless to say, the exam went really well. Xiao Liwu was only a few months old at the time, weighed 14.5 pounds and was 29 inches tall.
