Panda Update – Friday, November 15
We always like to try and have Xi Lun and Ya Lun out in one of our climate-controlled dayrooms during the weekend or during busy times because we know how much our guests love to see them and catch a glimpse of some of their playful antics, but it’s always nice to give them the option of spending time behind the scenes as well. When the twins are behind the scenes, the Panda Care Team is able to interact and train with them more, as well as provide some of their favorite enrichment items. Some of these items include two gray benches that are always given to them when they spend time in the behind-the-scenes den areas. Although the giant pandas typically prefer to lie on the floor (even when we offer them things like hay or wood wool to use as bedding), Xi Lun and Ya Lun just love having the option of resting on these benches. Danica recently got this adorable picture that shows you just how much they love their benches, and if this picture doesn’t make you smile, then I don’t know what will.
