The Smithsonian’s National Zoo published footage of its male panda taking a bubble bath on Thursday.

Tian Tian—whose name means “more and more”—can’t seem to get enough of the suds, rubbing them all over his ears in a tub that seems a small for the 264-pound animal.

As the zoo explains in a description of the video on YouTube, “Pandas do not bathe regularly in the wild, but when Tian Tian is in rut—meaning he’s exhibiting behaviors associated with breeding season—he especially likes to play in water.”
