Giant Panda at the National Zoo

For this weeks Camera Critter I am showing my favorite animal ..the Giant Panda bear seen at the National Zoo in Washington, DC. There are two Giant Pandas at the national zoo, their names are Mei and Tian.

      I am not sure which is Mei and which one is Tian, but this one really enjoyed eating the bamboo.



They are just so cute, you want to hug them!





 We were told they might find out in the summertime  if baby pandas are on the way.





This one looks like it was rolling around in the dirt, maybe this one is the male.




Hubby and I became Fonz members, which is Friends of the National Zoo. We plan on many more zoo visits thru-out the year. Mean time if you want to see lots more critters visit Misty Dawn's Camera Critters.  Thanks to Misty for hosting this fun critter meme and thanks for stopping by to see my critter post. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. They are Wonderful! I just want to take them home. Don't suppose my RV is big enough. ;) Crossing my fingers for a baby panda. Nice to be close enough to visit regularly.

  5. I've been there...in fact, that is the ONLY reason we stopped there. It was on my itinerary to go to the National Zoo to see pandas!! They're incredible beings. I do so love 'em. [Wasn't impressed with the condition of the zoo itself...in dire need of more upkeep]

    Wonderful array of grand photos.

  7. I miss the pandas -- especially Tai Shan who was born when we lived there. I have some wonderful photos of him when he was first on display. Always hoping to hear that Mei is going to have another.
