Taking a leisurely bath is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures: A tub of warm water, your favorite fragrance, and some much-needed time to yourself — what could be better than that? Well, an adorable panda named Tian TIan knows the feeling. When keepers provided him with a tub of water and some panda-safe bubble bath, he went to town. According to experts, Tian Tian did something called “scent anointing,” an irregular behavior that’s an indication of mating season. In other words, this panda is doing exactly what you would do before a date: Scrubbing behind his ears and making sure he smells nice. And how cute is that tail wiggle when he’s shaking off the water?
