    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!

    I don't know why I still can't see the last two posts as my adobe's up-to-date but looked at the facebook vid of the 3 legged panda. He seems to be doing remarkably well.
    I wonder what the Supervet would have been able to have done?

    I think he did do well, was that a while ago? Supervet would have built some false leg with a wheel on I suppose pandas don't do much other than sleep and eat.

    Good and bad news from The Beauval Zoo in France. Their female panda Huan Huan gave birth to twins last Friday, but as is sometimes the case, one didn't survive

    The surviving twin, a male, seems to be doing well
