Your morning adorable: Giant panda with an ice cube
At a zoo in China's Hubei province, extreme heat means that keepers need to take extra measures to keep the animals cool. A giant panda named Xi Wang was given blocks of ice to help regulate her temperature. (Similar measures were taken at the London Zoo earlier this month, when a heat wave struck and keepers made special fruit "popsicles" for the resident gorillas, chimpanzees and other apes.)
