Exciting things are happening in the world of giant pandas here at Zoo Atlanta. Well, exciting things for us anyway. We are currently making repairs to the outdoor habitats and getting them prepped for a makeover later this week. This makeover includes repairs to retaining walls, trimming of all the trees, and repairs to the climbing structures, but most notably, we will be installing sod in both of the habitats. Adding grass to the habitats always makes the areas look their best, and the pandas seem to enjoy the new texture under their feet as well. Now if we can just train them to cut it as well. Make sure to check it out next week and see the difference a little green makes.
