Panda Updates – Monday, August 26
Recently, one of our very generous donors gifted the giant pandas with a new enrichment item from our Wish List! The feedpods™ is an electronic feeding device that allows the Panda Care Team to offer the giant pandas leafeater biscuits remotely, either through scheduling timed feedings or a manual feeding using a computer or mobile device. Our team is super excited about feedpods™! We can use it to offer the giant pandas leafeater biscuits overnight, when we are in meetings, or any other time we are not physically in the building. We are still figuring out all of the features of the feedpods™ and working through some kinks, but all of the pandas have experienced the feedpods™ and have enjoyed eating biscuits at random times during the day and night.
