Mei Qing at Bifengxia Gives Birth


I recently posted about Ge Ge giving birth, one of the pandas I used to see everyday that I volunteered at Bifengxia. Now one of the pandas I looked after has given birth, Mei Qing.

Mei Qing was born in 2002. When I volunteered at BFX, the two pandas I was assigned to was You You and Jin Zhu, within a couple of days Jin Zhu was transferred to the maternity enclosures as it was thought she was pregnant. (She didn't give birth that year). She was replaced by Mei Qing, who quickly became a favourite.

Late on the 14th of August 2010 she gave birth to a male cub.
