  1. Oh my goodness!! What a cute little thing! I really love all the awesome Pic’s you share on your blog :-)
    Years ago my hubby and I went to San Fran, and did get a chance to go the zoo there. Had wonderful time. Now I suffer from panic with agoraphobia, so we don’t travel much. So blogs like yours really is therapeutic for me, and makes me feel I’ve been somewhere! So Thanks for that :-)
    God Bless,

    LOVE the name!!!

  3. Josh, did you actually get to go behind the scenes with the little guys? Love me some red pandas, and Tenzing is just wonderful. What a personality!

  4. Darn, I wish I still lived in the Bay Area.

    Lovely photos as always, Josh!

    I think Tenzing is entirely appropriate in light of the recent Mt. Everest tragedy.

    Those are some honkin’ paws!

    Tenzing is an excellent name. And its new bearer is exceptionally adorable!

  8. @dgerish – no, we were behind the glass and he was up in the treehouse for most of the time. He was a bit shy being new to the enclosure and all.

  9. Actually the Dalai Lama’s frist name as well :-)
