NEWS FLASH! WE HAVE TWINS!
LUN LUN GAVE BIRTH TO TWINS ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3RD and the US panda fans have gone wild, as you might imagine! Cub A was born at 7:20 AM and cub B was born at 8:07. So far, so good, but we are keeping our pseudo thumbs crossed that they are healthy. Panda cubs are really really really tiny and fragile. You can keep up to date on the zoo’s panda page here.
Here’s my earlier post about the panda watch:
I am intermittently watching the Zoo Cublanta panda cam, just in case Lun Lun pops out her cubs. She just kind of lying around, chewing on the odd piece of bamboo, not really serious breakfast eating, mind you, just because it’s something to do. Panda cubs are so tiny, you can’t tell if a panda is pregnant by looking at her. Sometimes the cubs don’t even show up on an ultrasound, but this time they did and they could see two. They must know what they were looking for, because it didn’t look like a panda to me.
But meanwhile, back at the Pinksonian National Zoo, Pinky is putting her plan into action with her brother’s help. Not that I expect she gave him much choice.
And now…Bear and Breakfast 2!
What could possibly go wrong with this plan?
Um…I guess we’ll find out on Wednesday. Bwahahahaha!
Be the Bear!
