Jin Zhu Gives Birth in Wolong's Semi Wild Centre


Jin Zhu, One of the pandas I had the pleasure of looking after for a few days back in 2008 has given birth to a cub in the semi wild centre at Wolong.

Jin Zhu was born in 1996 and moved to Kobe Japan in 2000, but returned in 2002 when Jin Zhu was showing signs of being both a male and female. The keepers continued to care for her and in 2007 gave birth to Jin Xin.

It's reported than mum and cub are doing well.
