We left Birdwood and the Motor Museum and drove into Adelaide, our final destination of our little South Australian tour. We spent a a few days here before travelling onto Sydney. The six of us decided to go to the Adelaide Zoo, where they have Pandas. I think it is the only zoo in Australia with Pandas. Of course we saw other animals as well but the Pandas were the highlight, as you can see by the following photos.
|I was chuffed with this photo as I mastered the trick of blurring out the fence wire.|
Besides being given bamboo to eat, the keepers hide panda cakes in the enclosure so that the Pandas learn to forage for food. This guy is
looking smelling for cakes.
He found one.
There were two Pandas, one male and one female.
I have forgotten their names......help me Ann. Thank you Ann. The female is Funi and the male is Wang Wang. I think the first photo is Funi and the others are Wang Wang.
I couldn't resist buying a Panda hat from the gift shop. It was a cold day so I was happy to wear it at the expense of embarrassing my friends.
When I came out of the bathroom back at the hotel there was a Panda on the bed reading a book.
