There seemed to be a lot of commotion Tuesday at pandas. Bai Yun was also going in and out of her bedroom a bit. She would come out of her bedroom to eat, but then went right back inside. On Monday, she was playing with one of her enrichment toys—a red ball with treats inside. The keepers hung it on the tree, and she was pawing it, trying so hard to get the biscuits to fall out. She ended up getting all of them.
Gao Gao was putting on quite a show for the guests. He was always facing the crowd, showing everyone his handsome face. He would just sit comfortably and chomp away at his bamboo. In the middle of the day, he ended up sleeping behind a rock in his enclosure. Some of the guests were asking me where he was, or they thought he was a rock. Gao Gao played a pretty good rock, too, not even moving a muscle!
It was an eventful day at pandas, as it usually is. And, of course, a panda day is not complete without a panda nap.
