Panda Updates – Wednesday, May 23

When it comes to bamboo shoots, the twins are 100 percent their mother’s daughters! These two have bottomless pits for stomachs when it comes to shoots! They literally ate for eight hours straight the other day before they fell asleep. Of course what comes in must come out later, so they’re leaving quite the mess for us to clean up as well. Sub-adult giant pandas are well-known for being less picky with their food, likely because they’re still growing and need all the calories they can get. These girls, however, take it to a whole new level! That being said, we sure are happy all of the-black-and-white bears are enjoying bamboo shoot season!
