Panda monium

Feeding time at the Giant Panda Breeding Base, Chengdu

This post doesn’t need too many words, the little black and white fury fellas tend explain themselves and elicit ooohhh and aaahhs pretty well without them.

So I will keep it short. Given scientists studying pandas in the wild can go for years without actually seeing one we knew our best option for getting close to these lovely creatures was a visit to the Giant Panda Breeding Base, located in Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The breeding base is home to about 50 pandas and is the world’s most successful panda breeding centre.

I have some video that I will upload to YouTube when it is easier to do so, but for now I have uploaded a very short one. Fingers crossed this it works, though if not, enjoy the images.
