Last week we went to the Giant Panda research centre. There we saw many different types of animals: Giant Pandas, Red Pandas, peacocks, Koi fish, and black swans.

The first panda that I saw was eating bamboo. The second panda that I saw was eating more bamboo. And the third enclosure looked like a panda bomb had struck and there were pandas eating bamboo everywhere!

Guess pandas like to eat bamboo!

At the Red Panda enclosure, there was a Red Panda in a tree. He looked at me straight in the eye, and he said, “I’m a teddy bear. Take me home!” That’s when I realized how much Red Pandas looked like teddy bears (and raccoons).

As we were walking to another panda enclosure, we came across a giant line of people. They were waiting to see the baby pandas. We got into line and shuffled past. They were sooooooo cute! They would lift up their heads and fall back down. They also made the cutest sound, like a puppy trying to bark.

I love pandas!!!
