Pandas Everywhere!





My friend Kathryn just sent me these photos and I had to share…I especially love the third photo, with the panda on the bottom right searching through the files.

The Sichuan Wolong Panda Protection and Breed Center is dealing with the results of a breeding boom where 16 pandas have been born. The brood includes five sets of twins. The cubs are weighed and measured every five days (see pics)The heaviest tips the scale at just over 24 pounds, while the lightest weighs about 11 pounds. The pandas are due to stop suckling soon – just about the time they’ll start learning to walk. Once weaned, the panda cubs will attend panda kindergarten. In the meantime, more little ones are expected at the centre since 38 giant pandas were artificially impregnated.

    But now beacause of the massive earth quake in Suchuan. Many giant pandas in Wolong breed center has been to Bifengxia, the other place in Sichuan which is more safe. If you want to do something help pandas such as volunteer, please visit: http://pandatour.com.cn/
