Nighttime Pandas

Yun Zi during his active phase.

Nighttime Zoo is here at the San Diego Zoo again! This means that our guests have more time to view the giant pandas, as their exhibit remains open until 8:30 every night through September 3. The pandas will soon get into the swing of their new schedule: meals arriving a little bit later and guests remaining a little bit longer. Most of the animals here at the Zoo may get a little sleepy during midday, but that is the great thing about Nighttime Zoo. Our guests may leave and return later in the evening to catch more animal activity!

These days, every day is different with the pandas, especially Yun Zi. Every now and then, Yun Zi has a really active day where he is running around and climbing up and down the trees, but then there are those lovely days where he goes to the front corner of his enclosure and naps all afternoon! Gao Gao has been getting into his bamboo more often and is doing very well; quite often, Gao Gao is the only one awake.

We look forward to hearing from you all and hope you all have safe summer travels. Come see us soon!
