9/12/2003: Newborn panda thrives



The newborn from three weeks ago is doing quite well, and "It's a Boy!" They couldn't work out whether it was male or female until its second exam, which you see above from Wednesday. They "stole" the baby from its mom for a mere six minutes while mom was eating.

Cute little smiling laddie.

There are only about 1200 pandas in the world.

Any word on the twin?



Undertoad  Friday Sep 12 12:38 PM

The twin didn't survive.



Griff  Friday Sep 12 01:13 PM

Thanks Toad! The girls love the animal pics.



LUVBUGZ  Friday Sep 12 01:17 PM

Cute little baby panda. Big difference from the little speck on his mama's chest last time UT posted a pic. of him. I haven't been following though, UT. Did the other baby end up being stillborn?



Guey  Friday Sep 12 01:18 PM

So, the twin died and the turd lived?

Thanks dave for pointing out the obvious, but I was asking UT if he had any more specific info. other than "twin didn't survive".



Undertoad  Friday Sep 12 01:59 PM

I tried to get more info on the other but didn't find anything. But I did find they've put video of this very exam online. (Click on "It's a Boy") It's fun to watch, because in the middle of it, the little bear lets out a few squeaks. They don't do very much to the cub, but he protests anyway. (You can even see the hands of the press photographer who took the above shot)

From the zoo site:

"The second twin, whom zoologists had expected to be stillborn, was birthed some three days after the first. It lived for a week before succumbing to PIV, or Panda Immunodeficiency Virus."



daniwong  Friday Sep 12 02:15 PM

OHH! That is so darn cute!!!!!!

Ouch. That's not a good sign for his future sex life, if they can't even tell if he's male. I think some of the daily spam I get may have some products that might help him out.

Of course, isn't the entire problem that Pandas are so stoned all the time they just lay around instead of mating anyway? Or is that the Koalas?

Quzah.

Skunks  Monday Sep 15 08:08 PM

Nah. Actually, the mpeg of that episode a friend tossed me was quite disturbing.

It was just an odd concidence, really, and I wanted to see what, if any, response the quote would draw.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Sep 21 09:28 AM

Do you think they eat their young?



elSicomoro  Sunday Sep 21 09:32 AM

Mmmm...tastes like chicken.

No, Bruce. Pandas are herbivores, not carnivores. But they might roll over and accidentally squash the poor little baby


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Sep 21 08:16 PM

Oh yeah, then how do they know their young taste like chicken?:p

Why don't you ask Syc, he's the one who said they taste like chicken, maybe he's tasted baby panda before


Elspode  Monday Sep 22 09:03 AM

It really is quite remarkable the variety of things you find in Chinese groceries these days, isn't it, Syc?



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 22 06:42 PM

Cool link, Els. For only $10 you can be officially nuts.



wolf  Tuesday Sep 23 01:58 AM

I can hook it up for you AND I'll see to it that it's covered by insurance.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Sep 23 05:24 AM

Really, Wolf? You know some hookers...and can get my ins to cover it?

Ok clearly I must log in more often. But I repeat myself. Now, did the two of you not have massive fun some time back over photo retouching?
If it is you two, and you're now seemingly more civil... Bueno, bueno. If it is not you two, I apologize.

No, it was Annebonannie. Though I think we are more civil now.

Say, what's Ich bin enttäuscht? You are a ....?
Just wondering.
