Ladies and gentlemen, this is your panda captain speaking: The mooncake has landed.

A giant panda named Hua Ao got a special treat at China's Nanshan Zoo thanks to the Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the biggest rituals in Chinese culture.

To celebrate the lunar harvest, people typically enjoy mooncakes, a pastry with a sweet filling.

Hua Ao and another panda, Qing Feng, got their own special mooncakes on Saturday – and honestly? They seemed to really enjoy them.
