Panda Updates – Friday, January 18

Many of you who have followed the giant pandas for a long time may remember that Lun Lun has always refused to eat sweet potatoes. Yang Yang and all but one of Lun Lun’s offspring love to eat sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes were always one food item we knew Lun Lun wouldn’t steal from her cubs once they started eating solid foods. But, Lun Lun has never liked to be predictable, so I really shouldn’t be surprised that she recently decided sweet potatoes aren’t that bad. In fact, she really likes them. It usually takes a long time for pandas to try a new food item, but I think 19 years may be a record. Check out our social networks later today to see a video Danica captured this week of Lun Lun chowing down on sweet potato.
