They’re here! They’re Here! The Scottish Pandas Arrive at last!

We have been waiting for this day for so long, (never mind that in the real world it happened a week ago, but still…) the pandas arrive in Scotland.  The ZooNooz reporting team would have been there to meet them, but for a slight communications mix up.

A big thanks to all of you who have been visiting The Panda Chronicles.  Your brain is officially now on pandas.

Will Scotland Be Brave in the face of the Panda Kindergarten?

Nobody expects the Panda Kindergarten!  Or was that the Spanish Inquisition?  No matter.  While the tune Scotland the Brave runs through my head, the Panda Kindergarten continues to get ready for Tian Tian and Yang Guang‘s arrival.  Bagpipes Beware!  What next? MacBear, or should I say, The Scottish Cartoon?

While we wait for the arrival of the Scottish pandas….

Of course we know that Tian Tian and Yang Guang are not actually Scottish,  I mean, it’s not like they are some exotic variation on Scottish Terriers, after all.  But still, our heart starts to go pitter patter just a bit when we think of pandas gracing the British Isles once again.  As you know, pandas have trod these paths before, and not so very long ago at that.  Am I speaking of Chi Chi, who lived at the London Zoo from 1958 until her death in 1972?  Why no! I’m speaking of the Torch Bears recent visit to Westminster Cathedral to start their round the world journey back to London for the 2012 (Panda) Olympic Games!

Be the Bear!
