This is the adorable moment an energetic panda bear zips around its zoo enclosure and has fun with a water sprayer before climbing a tree.

The frisky panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) was filmed at Moscow Zoo in the western Russian capital and the video was shared on the park’s official Instagram page.

According to local media, Zhui arrived at the Russian zoo in April with partner Dindi as part of a conservation programme.

Since arriving in Moscow, zoo experts have kitted out the panda enclosure with various obstacles and features to study their behaviour.

They are said to be in a good mood and full of beans immediately after munching on bamboo branches.

In the video, Zhui is seen frolicking on the log steps before playing with a water jet dousing the enclosure on a sunny day.

The cute panda climbs onto the wooden platform and squeezes its chubby frame through an obstacle.

The energetic panda bear then climbs a nearby tree and hangs upside down for a moment before appearing to scratch its bum on a tall branch.

Zhui is last seen scurrying under the platform and out of view, reportedly for a doze after its exertions in the enclosure.

In a second video, Zhui’s cute partner Dindi is seen playing in a tree and hanging upside down from two high branches.
