If you watch PandaCam, you know that Ya Lun and Xi Lun can be quite rambunctious. When they aren’t napping, most of their time is spent wrestling, eating, or chasing Lun Lun around the dayroom. These girls can go zero to 60 in seconds! Ok, maybe more like zero to three or four, but you get the picture.

Their energy and playfulness could likely test the patience skills of any mother. It is incredible to watch Lun Lun’s patience and she is a great panda mom. When the playing is over or naptime has just ended, it’s quiet moments like this that really make you step back and realize just how good of a Mom Lun Lun is.

This morning, the cubs were running around and playing with Lun Lun in the dayroom when we started our day. Lun was chasing them up the structure and rolling around in the hammock with them. To be honest, it was so cute that I was watching PandaCam from the computer room before I even had my shoes all the way on. We were cleaning the building and waiting for the cubs’ bottles to warm up, and it got really quiet all of a sudden. I peeked over to see what Lun and cubs were up to and caught this quick moment of calm before the cubs were right back at their play session.

Lun Lun is the first animal I have worked with who currently has offspring living with her. It’s amazing to get to know the animals you work with as individuals with their own quirky personalities, but it’s also really cool to get to know Lun as a Mom.

two things tell you this crow is a juvenile:  nasal calls and pink interior of his bill.  You can't see the inside of his bill in this video because I wasn't quick enough with the camera.

June 21, 2017:  Whirley and Rivet have very heavy wings filled with blood feathers.  A blood feather is a new feather that still has a blood supply to help it grow. When the feather is full-grown, it no longer needs blood to help it grow, so the blood vein recedes, leaving a normal, healthy feather.  In preparation for fledging (their first flight),  they need to stretch and exercise their wings.  Note that one of the chicks is walking on his toes, like an adult bird.

First hatch date:  May 12, 2017
Second hatch date:  May 14, 2017

The chicks are named Whirley and Rivet

Since my last update, I have spent more time with Ya Lun and Xi Lun to both win over their love with biscuits and also get to know them a little more. First, I gotta say that these girls are so fun to watch. When they aren’t sleeping, they are playing with each other and learning important panda lessons through play with mom Lun Lun also. Second, they are growing so fast. Ya Lun is already over 43 pounds, and Xi Lun isn’t far behind at 39 pounds. Third, I have tips on how to tell them apart. Of course you can cheat and look for the blue dot on Ya Lun’s back, but if you can only see their faces, look at the black around their eyes. Ya Lun has round, black markings, while Xi Lun has cat eyes where her markings dip in and then swoop outward.
