Panda Updates – Monday, March 19
We are well into arrow bamboo (Pseudosasa japonica) season. This is usually one of the favorite times of the year for the giant pandas, and this year’s harvest is no exception. The twins are especially obsessed with arrow. It is really long and skinny, the perfect size for an animal whose jaw strength is still developing. When we clean up the overnight mess from the “subs,” as I like to call them, we rarely find a whole piece of arrow. We just find a mess of shards where the whole pieces used to be.
