Panda Update – Wednesday, Feb. 15
Trying to weigh squirmy cubs is rather difficult. We offer the cubs supplemental formula three times a day, and weigh the cubs before and after receiving the formula. When they are sleepy, it’s quite easy to place them in the tub and get an accurate weight. However, later they’re usually quite awake and ready to play … so it’s quite the challenge to get them to stop squirming long enough for the number on the digital scale to stop moving all over the place! Jokingly we’re already trying to teach the concept of “hold” to the cubs…of course, they have no idea what we’re doing but we still try in feeble attempts!
