Let me out!

These images were in my inbox today, and I just had to share them!



Giant Pandas are known as "Da xiong mao" or "Giant Bear Cat" in China and are a symbol of peace.



Baby Pandas weigh less than an apple when they are born!



Pandas are mostly shy and spend most of their lives alone.

    Bearette: They usually give birth to 2 pandas, but generally only one survives...I hope they both make it!

    Bearette: I read that their fur is quite oily...to make it waterproof.

    Pandas have to be the absolute cutest critter in the world. And they eat a renewable thing! What's not to love...

    Thanks for your nice comment. I occasionally read the list just to remind myself what I do has great worth.

    Robin: LOL

    It's D.C.'s very own... Tai Shan. Or, as he was dubiously nicknamed shortly after his birth, "Butterstick." Seems he was about the same length and weight as an 8 oz. stick of butter at birth. Tai Shan just celebrated his first birthday a few weeks ago. It'll be a sad day next year when he has to be returned to China.
