    It's a Panda! 22nd Jul 13 at 8:09 PM
    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 really cant afford another 'direct debit donation'. but Pandas do sound really interesting a 'good cause'.
    My bro had a Panda toy which he took to bed for his first few years as a child - I think I will buy him a years subscription (if they do that) for his birthday pressie - it will tickle him pink!

    The pandas at San diego are

    Wu the cub who is one on the 24th
    Bai Yun his Mother...he is her sixth cub
    Yun Zi her 3.5 year old male cub
    Gao Gao who is the father of the cubs

    They are all kept seperate apart from the Mother and cub. They normally seperate at around 18 months

    That sounds like a lovely idea . Only reason I can afford it tbh is because I don't spend money on anything else apart from meds, don't drink or smoke, don't go shopping or out to restaurants or pubs etc due to illness. No children. I only have one adopted animal at the moment that OH pays for (it was a christmas gift).

That's sorted now though it was just the doctors forgetting to send it over to boots, boots take care of it now for me though and I have everything delivered. I will get one of those cards, at the moment I spend roughly about 30 a month I think on my meds (luckily OH gets his free, he's an insulin dependant diabetic) the card is about 140 isn't it?
