Panda Updates – Monday, November 6
Occasionally, the pandas receive approved browse that we cut on grounds and give to them as enrichment. Most of the time, the pandas will investigate or play with it, but they rarely consume it (which would be ok because it is approved by our Horticulture and Veterinary Teams). That is, of course, until you give Yang Yang some mulberry. He is known to strip the bark off the outside and “culm” the mulberry much like he does his bamboo. He has even gone as far as harvesting his own mulberry from the patch growing out in Habitat 1. This morning when Yang Yang was still behind the scenes, he enjoyed some mulberry for breakfast. He enjoys it so much that we try to offer it to him as often as we can, while still being sure to save some for a certain little muntjac up at the Hoofstock barn.
