    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.

    I didn't realise how big he'd got, though!

    Yes, looking at the full video, he did seem to be reacting in a fear response way.



    His name means "Accomplishment of a Dream".


    He is still very fluffy and quite grey, rather than black. Is that common, Colin?

    No, not really, as there's no hyphen between hairy and toothed.
    Hairy teeth would be giant, hairy-toothed panda.

    However, there, should, strictly speaking, be commas between Giant, Hairy, and Toothed.
    I didn't want it to look like I was correcting Coley.



    The Giant, Hairy, Toothed, Attack Panda.

    There.
