Panda Updates – Friday, December 22
Ya Lun and Xi Lun have taken quite a while to adjust to the outdoor habitat. They enjoy eating out there with Lun Lun, but are less comfortable resting outside and prefer to sleep in the dayrooms. In the last week or so, we have seen both cubs trying out different sleeping spots in the habitat. Initially, they slept in the cave for a few days, then Xi Lun chose to rest at the very back of the habitat by the rear doors. Eventually, they tried sleeping on the structure – on both levels. Ya Lun finally decided that the top of the structure was her favorite place to take a nap. Xi Lun is still not sure where her favorite napping place is outside yet. She usually waits until Ya Lun has settled into her spot to sleep, then climbs up and drapes herself on top of Ya Lun, which usually results in a wrestling match instead of sleeping.
