Panda Updates – Wednesday, July 29
The pandas were able to try a new scent recently: smoked paprika. As it turns out, they love it! The first time the twins received it, they self-anointed for about five minutes, much longer than a usual scent holds their attention. Today we put smoked paprika inside a culvert in their dayroom, and they had a blast rolling around in the culvert, getting the smell all over themselves. Lun Lun isn’t as excited about it, but Yang Yang is in favor of using it for its original purpose – he licks it! He’ll also self-anoint after he’s licked it a bit, but it seems he likes the flavor as much as the smell itself. It’s always fun to bring in something new for the pandas to explore!
