Bouncing Baby . . . Panda

Congratulations to the Atlanta Zoo, and especially to mama Panda Lun Lun on the birth of a great panda cub yesterday afternoon!

Get more information on the pandas here, and stay posted for another possible birth. Pandas often give birth to twins and the birth might take place up to 24 hours later than the first!

    Yeay for baby pandas!

    Sadly, I understand we technically have a “lease” on the pandas with no option to purchase, and that the wee cutie pie will be sent back to China in 2 years…so get your fix while you can (once it’s out for viewing in a few weeks).

    There isn’t anything on their website about this supposed factioid, I heard it while flipping stations on the radio on the way to work…so it must be true. ;)

    My “couple of weeks” estimation was way off…

    “The cub will be introduced to Zoo Members and guests in late 2006 or early 2007”. Oy.
