My Sweet Tai Shan

My Sweet Tai Shan
For my first photo for Ipernity, I just had to post my favorite photo of Tai Shan. This was taken when he was 16 months old.

Haha ... a terrific shot of Tai Shan up in the tree ... I will have to check to see if the two at the Toronto Zoo have a tree to climb, the next time I visit. BTW, Er Shun is the Female Panda. Her name means "double smoothness." She is five years old. She was born at the Chongqing Zoo in China and was raised by her mother. Her Chinese handlers say she is "docile yet lively."

Da Mao is the Male Panda. His name means "big fur." He is four years old. He was born through artificial insemination at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China and was hand-reared. He is described as "a lively and tender gentleman."

Art, through my panda groups I have heard quite a bit about Er Shun and Da Mao. I hope they have lots of trees to climb. Pandas love climbing trees and rolling down hills. I can't wait to see your photos of them in the winter (they really love snow!).

I soo enjoy visiting pandas at the zoos and often visit them when we travel. We've seen them in Atlanta, GA, Memphis, TN and also San Diego, CA. I never tire of them! .Most times they are eating...nice to see one in a tree! Great image...
