Not sure if it’s the same cub as the one posted earlier. But this one gets time with Mummy Hua Mei!

News alert from Christina over at Yahoo! Hua Mei.

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’s 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.

Strike a pose

Bet you never seen anything quite like this before.


Found the picture on the Net the other evening.

BTW, that’s Hua Mei sometime in 2002.

I know … they all look alike. But only Hua Mei, who has been in the limelight ever since she was born, can strike such a pose.

He was up for a bit, and looked like he had a hangover. Too much bamboo?


After which, he went back to sleep.
