Panda Updates – Monday, June 17
It’s crazy to think that in a few short months Ya Lun and Xi Lun will be 3 years old. They’ve each grown into their big personalities and we are still learning new things about them all the time. Recently, we have been spending time focusing on training with each of them. We have trained with them in the past, but as two growing bears, their main focus was always finding the next bite of bamboo. This is still a big priority of theirs, but they are able to focus for longer periods of time during training sessions. Right now, we are training them for behaviors that will help us monitor their health daily. These behaviors include things like opening their mouths so we can look at their teeth and presenting their paws.
