Video released by the zoo captured Bei Bei tearing into his birthday and chewing.Bei Bei was born to great fanfare in 2015 and quickly turned into a tourist favorite at the National Zoo, with crowds lined up to catch a glimpse of the newborn giant panda. A second cub born with Bei Bei died shortly after birth. Giant pandas are native to China and have a very low reproductive rate, especially in captivity. Giant pandas are one of the world’s most endangered species, with only 300 in captivity and some 1,600 in the wild.
