Meet Lun Lun by Skeeter
Yesterday the Saint and I went to Zoo Atlanta so we could see their latest arrival. Lun Lun is the new baby Panda being just over a year old. She is adorable to say the least! She was born Sept 6, 2006 and weighed a mere 4 ounces! She was about the length of a sick of butter!
Mommy Panda was trying to get Lun Lun to nurse but the playful baby was too busy trying to get mommy to play with her! She crawled all over mommy and kept nipping at her with not much reaction from mommy.
They had daddy Panda separated from his baby as they are not material. In other words mommy does all the work and daddy would just view the baby as a play toy thus probably hurting it with his 300 pound body. I found it interesting how daddy does not take a part in the child rearing but that is common amongst a lot of animal species…
I wish I had a better picture for y’all to see but that little gal would not cooperate with me and we did not want to hoard the front row for too long as she had quit a crowd wanting to see her!
The Saint and I were pleasantly surprised at the changes at Zoo Atlanta! We never liked it due to the outdated facilities being filled with Fences and Cages. But I am happy to say they have updated a lot since our first visit! And even though this is an old Zoo, it was so clean that it shocked me! Usually old places tend to be dirty looking but not here! Plus they have one of the best Gorilla exhibits I have ever seen! We spotted 2 babies on mommy’s back! So if y’all are looking for something to do on a boring weekend, drive the 4 hours south and check out Zoo Atlanta. It will be worth the visit…
