Waited for the pandas for 3 hours

About 13:00, September 17, Sichuan Airlines 3U8579 which Pu Pu and Fa Fa took arrived in Shenyang.When the flight landed safely and taxied slowly, the panda fans who waited at the airport for 3 hours all became very excited. They waved the plates and scrolls with 'Welcome to Shenyang' on them to express their affection to the pandas.

The working staffs of Shenyang Forestry Zoo have made full preparation to welcome the pandas.September 15, they cleaned the rooms prepared for the pandas and sterilized the hammock and toys.The first batch of bamboos from Sichuan transported by air arrived in Shenyang on September 16. The working staffs who will be taking care of the pandas made cookies carefully... To express their warm welcome, the breeders specially prepared bamboo cakes, carrots, apples, grapes and cucumbers.

Special personnel accompanied the pandas to pacify their emotion

After landing, Wang Yi, curator of the Panda House of Shenyang Forestry Zoo, called 'Pu Pu' and 'Fa Fa' repeatedly to pacify their emotion.'It's the first long-distance travel of the 4 pandas. I am quite worried about them.' said Wang Yi. She kept talking to the pandas the day before the day they left for Shenyang. She also brought water, bamboo, bamboo shoot, apples and other snacks for them from their hometown.

What's really comforting is that the pandas were in good mood and condition when they arrived in Shenyang.After landing, Pu Pu and Fa Fa adapted to the new environment very soon. Fa Fa would respond Wang Yi whenever she called its name.Pu Pu was busy eating bamboo on the way to Shenyang Forestry Zoo.The working staffs working at Shenyang Forestry Zoo told the reporter that the two pandas became even much happier when they arrived at the zoo. They picked up the bamboo and started eating at once.

'The relatives of the wife's family' affirmed the domicile in Shenyang

'I felt really reluctant to sent them to Shenyang. But the work mates in Shenyang care a lot about them, we felt at ease.' Wang Yanfang, a working staff from China Protect and Reach Center for Pandas, said pandas are just like human being. They also have emotion and feeling. They even felt sad a few days before leaving Sichuan. Thus, Wang Yanfang came to Shenyang together with the pandas and would stay with them for a few days. She'll go back to Sichuan when the little fellows can adapt to the living in Shenyang.

'Shenyang Forestry Zoo sent breeders to Sichuan to have training a long time ago. They lived with the pandas to let them get used to 'Dongbei' language. The house built for the pandas is very cozy. I believe that they can get used to the living in Shenyang very soon.' said Wang Yanfang.

Brown is the healthy color for pandas

The 'panda fans' who went to welcome the pandas have a question:Shouldn't the pandas be black and white? Why Pu Pu and Fa Fa are a little brown?

Wang Yanfang told the reporter that the color of the pandas is not pure white. The color is a little bit on the yellow side.Besides, they like rolling on the ground. The fur looks a little dirty. Brown is the healthy color of the pandas.To avoid reducing immunity, the breeders will not give the pandas a shower unless they really need to.
