TIANTIANBIRTHDAY.JPG
103 viewsTian Tian, Edinburgh’s female panda, celebrates her tenth birthday on 24th August. Born at the Bifengxia Panda Base in 2003, she’s a mere 10 days younger than her rejected pandamour, Yang Guang. There’s actually a bit of confusion about her name because, according to Edinburgh Zoo, Tian Tian means ‘Sweetie’, whereas according to Washington’s National Zoo, whose male panda is also called Tian Tian, it means ‘more and more’ ie more and more bamboo! I was at the zoo to wish Tian Tian happy birthday but disappointingly, though understandably, she preferred to stay out of sight and, according to the panda guide, would be given her birthday present in private. The ultimate present would, of course, have been a baby panda which isn’t as improbable as it sounds as 24th August had been mentioned as the date when the cub watch will start in earnest at Edinburgh Zoo.
