THIS JUST IN: Bebeh Pandas Goin’ Mobile

Breaking Panda Nooz via Cuteporter Cheryl S.: “Here’s a video just posted at Zoo Atlanta on the Twin Panda Cubs’ first day on exhibit. (Mei Lun & Mei Huan. But which is which? They need little panda football jersey numbers.) What’s cuter than a baby panda? Two baby pandas, of course!”

[Can’t fault THAT logic. -Ed]

THIS JUST IN: The National Zoo Panda Name Is….

Bao-BaoBao Bao! The Washington Post says that means “‘precious or treasure’ and is pronounced ‘bough bough.'” The National Zoo website says she will make her public debut next month!


THIS JUST IN: Sleeping Bebeh Pandas!!

Dateline, Atlanta Zoo! Mei Lun just wants to sleep. Mei Huan wants to play NOW.

National Zoo Panda Update!

‘Member back about a month ago, Mama Panda Mei Xiang had herself a Bebeh Panda and it came out looking, um, rather small? Rule #1 when dealing with Pandas: They get bigger.

“You have to see this video ~ it must be shared with the Interworldz! Mama Mei’s hugeness next to her little one, and her gentleness, are nearly too much to bear (unintended yet appropriate pun :).” -Cuteporter Debra R.

Here’s the latest YT video from last week, or you can always dial up the Panda Cam.

Can We Interest You In FOURTEEN Bebeh Pandas?

Twenty bebeh pandas were recently born in China, and now we get to see 14 of the 17 that survived, here at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Thanks to Cuteporter Emily W.

Turn Up The Speaks, To Hear The Squeaks!

Zookeepers in Taipei introduce month-old bebeh panda Yuan Zai to its mom.

Panda Power! (Taipei Style)

Cute Overload Peeps, please give a warm welcome to Newby Panda Tuan Tuan!

Get a LOAD OF THIS FUZZ!!! (Sorry- get excitable talkin’ about pandas.)


Tuan Tuan was born at the Taipei Zoo July 6th to nine-year-old Giant Panda Yuan Yuan.


Mail Online says “The panda was born at the Taipei Zoo after three years filled with seven failed pregnancies for the mother. Natural pregnancy among pandas is relatively rare.”


Visitors to the Taipei Zoo won’t get to see Tuan Tuan for another couple of months.


Mom Yuan Yuan was a gift to Taiwan from China.


Tuan Tuan’s weight has already doubled!


Tuan Tuan + Yuan Yuan together mean “reunion.”


Tuan Tuan gets to stay in Taiwan- usually any cubs born abroad from a Chinese-loaned Panda are returned to China.


Wouldn’t It Be Nice

Wouldn’t it be nice to live together, in the kind of world where we belong.

You know it seems the more we talk about it,

It only makes it worse to live without it.

But let’s talk about it!
