wave Panda Pals,
Dose any one have updated news from Lady Lani :question:
Your posts about her will be very much appreciated Thank You



Here's the latest Mei Lan update from Zoo Atlanta:

Wednesday, February 10

Mei Lan is continuing to adjust slowly to her new home. Heather reported that Mei Lan ate some bamboo today and had normal feces again. Mei Lan also ate some banana that Heather offered her.

The giant pandas at the Chengdu Research Base are not normally fed bananas. They receive apples and carrots in addition to their bamboo and biscuits. We started feeding Yang Yang and Lun Lun bananas after they arrived in Atlanta because it’s easy to put medication in bananas. It’s always useful to have a good food vehicle to deliver medications to an animal. It took a few exposures to banana before Yang Yang and Lun Lun would eat them. Because giant pandas are feeding specialists, they tend to be reluctant to try new foods. Lun Lun used to peel her bananas and would not eat the peels. Eventually, she stopped peeling them and ate the peel with the fruit. Mei Lan learned to eat bananas because they were a regular part of her mother’s diet.

Mei Lan’s new keeper, Ms. Duan, had asked Heather what Mei Lan’s favorite food is. Heather told her that Mei Lan especially likes bananas and sugarcane. Later that day, Ms. Duan, brought bananas for Mei Lan. She didn’t eat any the first day, but did eat some today. Banana will be a good food for Ms. Duan to use to reinforce Mei Lan during training sessions.

Thanks for the updates on Mei Lan, good to hear she is making progress. And wow I didn't realize they'd start the weaning right away with Xi Lan, he's still a baby in my eyes Wub

Some great new photos out in Flickr land of the Lun-Yangs - including Lani bear - in case anyone missed them!

Anyone having trouble with their PandaCam stream?

PandaLover, I had problems with the cam yesterday AND today. I'm getting a black screen after a few minutes.Sad

wave Panders, thx for links about our precious Lani & s'caps, good to see you Eagle Eye & glad you got to hear Sandra via hubby, what a wonderful trip she is on. Since my pc has been messing up & now won't restore:blink: thought that was why I haven't been able to get the cam, but see others can't either: so here is some watching, most recent I have from the day Mei Lan leftOut

The day Mei Lan leaves for China, Lan is sleepy,Sleepy but it seems Lun wants him to wake-up. Wub She first goes up and gets him down onto the ladder and then comes down on him, & slam-dunks him onto the ground. Oh My He goes to different places sleepy& is still so groggy but she keeps walking against or over him,:blink: determined to get him awake. Lan gets a short break while Lun takes a scratch bathgiggle & then here she comes againNodding yes~~Some in 2X but sometimes she just walked fast. Wonder if they know or sense Mei Lan is gone yet.:cry1: Lan sure was groggy & Lun didn't give up.It Wasn't Me
2/4/10~Xi Lan is Draggy: Lun is Determined~9.20min. < Video Link
