Panda Updates – Wednesday, July 31

As you might remember from my recent panda update, I’m new to the Panda Care Team, which means I’m making sure to spend time observing the animals in our care and getting to know each individual better. On several occasions I have spotted Idgie the red panda sticking out her tongue out as she moves around the habitat. When Idgie is sticking out her tongue she is essentially testing the odors or particles by passing them from her tongue to a gland located in her mouth. It’s an interesting adaptation to be able to observe!
