3 Year Old Shui Ling Dies Suddenly


I'm very sad to report that Shui Ling has died just weeks before her 3rd birthday.

It's been reported that she had died of Mesenteric Torsion which is where the intestines get wrapped up and blood supply to them gets cut off causing the intestine to die and rot.

The symptoms are very hard to spot until it is too late, then the animal dies of shock.

Shui Ling is the daughter of Long Xin and younger sister of Fu Ni one of the pandas who was sent to Adelaide. Long Xin has had a total of 7 cubs so far.
