On July 10th, the female giant panda “Mengmeng” living in the Berlin Zoo greeted her 7th birthday. The garden specially prepared a “birthday cake” made of ice cubes, decorated with carrots, apples and bamboo. On the 15th of this month, the male giant panda “Jiaoqing” will celebrate its 10th birthday.
The Sichuan panda “Mengmeng” and “Jiaoqing” arrived in Berlin in June 2017 and quickly became the most popular animal star in the Berlin Zoo. On August 31, 2019, “Dream Dream” gave birth to the first pair of newborn panda cubs in Germany-the twins “Dream” and “Dream Circle”.
Katharina Sperling, a spokesman for the Berlin Zoo, told reporters from China News Agency that the twin babies “dream” and “dream round” are still too young to share the “birthday cake” with their mother “dream dream” . The breeder explained that the giant panda twins had not tasted apples and carrots, and were easily choked when eating vegetables and fruits of this size.
It is reported that the 10-month-old “Dream” and “Dream Circle” have reached 22 kg in weight. In terms of food, the giant panda twins currently mainly drink milk and also start eating bamboo. Due to the weak ability of young giant pandas to regulate their body temperature in summer, the garden has re-built a cool “playground” with trees for them to climb and play with “dream” and “dream circle”.
On July 15th, the male giant panda “Jiaoqing” will celebrate its 10th birthday. The garden said that it has prepared a birthday surprise for “Jiaoqing”. With the improvement of the epidemic situation, the Berlin Zoo has resumed normalization and opened its gardens. People can already see the panda family in the panda museum.
I look forward to the growth of the giant panda “Mengmeng” and “Jiaoqing”. Then it has been the most popular animal star in the Berlin Zoo.
