Three Pandas

Filed in General, Stress Busters, Travels

This trip to Bifengxia Panda Base, I’ve focused on just three pandas – my two adopted pandas, and the two pandas coming to Malaysia.

Wait … that’s four pandas, not three. Well, there’s an overlap. Feng Yi, one of my two adopted pandas, is also one of the two pandas coming to Malaysia.

Today was the last day of this trip, and I went to visit Feng Yi in the morning, and Gong Zhu in the afternoon. Fu Wa, Feng Yi’s neighbour, was included in the morning visit.

Feng Yi, adopted panda coming to Malaysia


The keeper told her, “only one piece of wowotou!”
She replied, “one piece here … ” (pointing to one palm) and “one piece here … ” (pointing to the other palm)

Fu Wa and Feng Yi at the howdy fence


It was a treat to see them interacting from Feng Yi’s side of the fence, altho she was walking away in this photo

Fu Wa, panda coming to Malaysia


Looking a little lost here, as if wondering, “where did she go?”

Gong Zhu, adopted panda


Pausing in her ‘booing to give me a bye-bye smile

One of Xi Mei’s cubs

Xi Mei gave birth to twins, male (older) and female (younger), at Bifengxia Panda Base on 11 July 2012. As she cannot care for both at the same time, one of them was taken to be raised in the nursery at birth while the other remained with her, but they are swapped every few days so they can each spend time with her.

At 2 months old, her cubs have outgrown the incubator and now sleep in a wicker basket in the nursery.

One of Long Xin’s cubs

Long Xin gave birth to twins, both girls, at Old Wolong on 28 July 2012. One of them was later brought back to Bifengxia Panda Base and is currently in an incubator in the nursery there. At almost 7 weeks old, the cub is strong enough to lift her head and look around her.

One of Si Xue’s cubs

Si Xue gave birth to twins at Old Wolong on 15 August 2012. One of them was later brought back to Bifengxia Panda Base and is currently in an incubator in the nursery there.

Born in 2006, Si Xue is also the first from that year to become a mother.
