A Super Shout Out and Grand Panda Thank You to superfast Cuteporter Nicole K. who says, “Will you please get a load of that cute little squirmy hairless panda?!?  Mei Xiang is an excellent mom—she immediately picked up the cub and has been cradling it ever since.”, and our own Brinke!

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!
