A man has challenged giant panda Tian Tian to a "snow battle" after seeing a widely-shared video of the bear enjoying the recent US snowstorm.

Jeffrey Perez from Maryland in the US posted a copy-cat clip on Instagram which is almost an exact replica of the original video which was seen and 'liked' by millions.

Mr Perez rolls about in the snow in a full-body panda suit and mimicks Tian Tian's excitement at being able to play in so much of the white stuff.

It's unclear whether Tian Tian will accept Mr Perez's 'snow battle' challenge but there's no contest when it comes to cuteness - Tian Tian wins by a paw.
