Two of the super-stars at the National Zoo are the pair of Giant Pandas, Tian Tian and Mei Xiang. Their first offspring Bao Bao reached the age of 3 and she was repatriated to China this past March. Their current cub, Bei Bei is just of a year and a half old, and he's doing fine. So it's time and Mei Xiang seems to be in agreement to breed again. If she were to conceive and successfully bear a third cub, she would be one of the most prolific Giant Panda's in captivity.
|I think I love this photo best of all!--silly panda!|
When I observed the pandas, the interior habitat, where Bei Bei was, wasn't open, and when I came back around at the end of my visit, the lines were obscene. So no Bei Bei this time.
