Lun Lun is an avid climber and enjoys sleeping on climbing structures. Born at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China, she was separated from her mother at 4 ½ months of age. She arrived at Zoo Atlanta with Yang Yang in 1999 and has gone on to become the mother of seven offspring: Mei Lan (born 2006); Xi Lan (born 2008); Po (born 2010); twins Mei Lun and Mei Huan (born 2013); and twins Ya Lun and Xi Lun, born September 3, 2016.  Lun Lun is considered to be a strikingly beautiful panda because her cheeks are very round and fluffy. The Chinese consider round faces to be very beautiful.  Favorite scents: Cinnamon and mint
