Hua Mei’s Baby

Filed in Pictures, Stress Busters

So cute …

Christina shared the news over at the Yahoo! Hua Mei group.

To think that the mama herself was about the same size just five years ago:


“One of the twin cubs born by the American-born female giant panda Hua Mei sleeps in an attemperator at the China Wolong Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in southwest China‚Äôs Sichuan Province Sept. 27, 2004. Giant panda Hua Mei, who did not know how to feed her babies after giving birth to them, learned some basic skills in the nursing of cubs in a 7-day training session held by the staff of the research center. Now, Hua Mei and the personnel of the China Wolong Giant Panda Protection and Research Center take care of the two cubs in alternation of five days. (Xinhua Photo/Chen Xie)” Source: Xinhuanet

God-willing, I’ll be visiting Hua Mei and her babies next year.

Thursday mid-afternoon, San Diego Zoo

Two cool guys

Cool guy #1 – Dooku


Cool guys #2 – Kaizer

Thanks, guys, for being so sporting and draping on Val’s pink cardigan.

  • Please excuse the “off” lighting (altho I thought it added to the atmosphere), I was in a hurry to capture the “moments” and forgot to check the camera settings
  • The #1 and #2 are only in the order the pictures were taken, and in no way reflect the “popularity” of the two fellows
