Panda Update – Monday, Feb. 20

We gets lots of questions about the relationship between Yang Yang and the twins, but giant pandas are solitary by nature. Ya Lun and Xi Lun (pictured) may see him through the dayroom windows or smell him while inside, but they know to focus on mom Lun Lun. Even Lun Lun doesn’t pay much attention to Yang Yang when she catches a glimpse of him through the windows. Giant pandas innately know who to be friends with and who to be more cautious about. Our giant panda family may not fit our human definition, but they are a perfect panda family.
