cool Panda

Panda Wang Wang in the Adelaide Zoo enjoying his airconditioned quarters. Lynettea thought this would be a good picture for me to post. Wang Wang and Funi have only been here a short while. I can't understand why there is so much fuss about them.

They don't even purr.
They have multi million dollar quarters to keep out of the sun when it is hot and to take a rest whenever they want.

Lynettea doesn't have a really good picture of Funi (foo nee) Lucky Girl.
Maybe she will get one soon.
You can also see some of their luxurious outside quarters in this picture. Funi has a tree to climb on and Wang Wang has a refrigerated rock. Pandas live by themselves in the wild bamboo forests in the mountains surrounding the Yangtze basin in China. Probably because they can't see very well through the bamboo thickets and have to spend all the time looking for other pandas. This is very tiring and they sit around a lot chewing on the bamboo and reflecting on Panda history.

Would you believe Diamon, that my mum and dad plan to visit the pandas? From here in Melbourne? They are silly.

Er, that should say Diamond. My typist can't type.

Hello Huffle, let your mum and dad know that they should book before they come to see the pandas. Lynette says that they seem to be most active earlier in the day, but she is not quite sure as she has only seen them once. They will be out in their main enclosures shortly, so there will be a better chance to see them for a bit longer. Lynettea is working at the zoo as a volunteer. She wastes a lot of time there that could be devoted to a better cause (me me me me).
