  33. This is the famous Hua Mei. A female, and the first panda baby born in the Western Hemisphere. She was born at the San Diego Zoo in 1999. In 2004 she returned to China for breeding and has since given birth to 3 sets of twins. Meanwhile her mother Bai Yun remains at San Diego Zoo and is still birthing cute cubbies herself, right now she baby Zhen Zhen. So Bai Yun is a productive mother and Grandmother.

    Hua Mei has pink patches due to a chemical reaction to her mother syliva which occurs when the mother grooms her cub.

    And now you know everything…

  34. chanpon says:

    Really digging his slightly in-turned toesies. What a cutie-pie.

  35. Please find another name for him. References to piddling are more degrading than cute.

  36. It’s a fair cop, but society is to blame.

  37. If she picked that bamboo up, she could be Puttin’ on the Ritz!

  38. momof2kitties says:

  43. This could also be a joyous hand wave a la Wallace. “Bamboo, Gromit!”

  44. Is anyone else sort of creeped out by this photo? I find the expression on the panda’s face is so human that it crosses over into uncanny valley territory…

    “No, no YOU take the last piece. Really I’m stuffed, I simply can’t eat another bite. Go on, I INSIST!”

  48. “Whoa, just slow down, dude, nobody said anything about horking your bamboo, I just wanted to take a little gander, bra.” (probably in a Jack Black voice)
