Panda Updates – Friday, March 5

Now that spring is just around the corner, we are so glad to be enjoying this warmer weather! It does, however, mean that we have to keep a closer eye to the temperature because if it gets too warm, the giant pandas may need to step inside. That’s because giant pandas actually have really dense fur to help them keep warm. We keep a close eye on them and if we start to notice them getting too warm, we bring them into their indoor areas. This early in the year, we’re not at that point yet, but Yang Yang was definitely trying to reach a scratch in that thick, dense fur the other day and was just too cute! Be sure to check out a video on our social networks later today.
