Panda Updates – Monday, October 23
The cubs are beginning to consume some bamboo. While they still don’t quite have the jaw strength to break the large culms like their parents, they are eating some leaves and small sprigs. They are working on their jaw strength as we have seen them trying to break the small branches. Although milk is still their primary food source at the moment, they are going to gradually start to eat more bamboo, more biscuits, and, hopefully, more sweet potatoes.
