    Awwwwwwwwwww twin panda boys born in Atlanta Zoo six days ago....Congratulations to Lu Lu



    Just an update on the Atlanta panda twins....

    This thread was started jut over two years ago when the twin pandas Mei Lun and Mei Huan were born in Atlanta Zoo. They are the only surviving twin pandas still surviving born in a US Zoo. Well they celebrated their 2nd birthday back in July and they are still together in the same enclosure and will be until they reach sexual maturity at about age 4.

    Mind you, there's far less of that effect when someone wears rimless glasses.
    I do, and I've noticed than in photos, you barely notice that I wear glasses!


    Of course, in the past, very short-sighted people had bottle-bottom lenses, which magnified their eyes a bit, so their eyes looked very piggy when they took their glasses off. Since the invention of the slim lenses, there's far less of that, thank goodness!
