Guess what is happening today? The twins are turning one! Mei Lun and Mei Huan the giant panda twins have a birthday this week. These adorable babies have a big day in store. According to the Atlanta Zoo website, “the cubs will be going on exhibit around 11 a.m., so that way they will be awake to explore their very first ice cakes before they melt.” Today would be a great day to visit the zoo and to celebrate with Mei Lun and Mei Huan! They are the first panda twins to be born in the United States since 1987. If you can’t make it out today, be sure to watch them on the Panda Cam.
The Atlanta Zoo has a great website if you are wanting to learn more about Giant Pandas. They are native to China and due to farming and land clearing they are now restricted to the mountain regions. They have become a critically endangered species. According to the Atlanta Zoo, there are only 1,600 still left in the wild. Pandas can live up to 35 years in a zoo but they are still unsure about their lifespan in the wild.
Please let us know how it was or send pictures if you are able to celebrate with these cuties!
Happy Birthday, Mei Lun and Mei Huan!
