Panda Updates – Friday, March 23
Those of you who have been following Zoo Atlanta’s giant pandas for a while may remember that our first set of twins, Mei Lun and Mei Huan, enjoyed sharing bamboo. No matter how much bamboo they had, they always sat next to each other and ate the same piece together. Ya Lun and Xi Lun are now doing the same thing sometimes. However, unlike Mei Lun and Mei Huan, these two girls aren’t quite so sisterly about sharing. Ya Lun and Xi Lun do share the same piece of bamboo, but they do a lot of grabbing, shoving, pushing, and vocalizing while doing so. We are not worried about this behavior – the girls are not injuring each other or unhappy; they just have different ways of doing things than their older sisters did.
