    After that horrible story yesterday, I thought you'd like some super cuteness.

    There isn't much information about the pandas in this video, the page on youTube just says filmed at Chengdu, China.

    A news article came in to my RSS feed, which caused me quite some distress until I had managed to get it translated and realised that the images are fake.

    A conservationist group has created an ad campaign that replaces images of tuna with the images of pandas. Follow the reference link below to view the images. They are quite nasty.

    Please remember they are faked and no pandas were hurt.

    Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

    Zoo Atlanta has named their Panda Cub Po after the Panda in Kung Fu Panda.

    I can't say how disappointed I am in hearing this. We now Have two Po's Born in 2010. With the other one being one of the Spanish Twins.

    This is all down to money, I know it's difficult for Zoos to get Sponsorship at this difficult time, but to me this seems so wrong.

    What do you think?

    The National Zoo in Washington DC have stated that Mei Xiang and Tian Tian have been given the privacy of the panda pavilion, as Mei Xiang has come in to season.

    The pair did attempt natural mating but it seems that it was unsuccessful so specialists from China suggested that Mei Xiang should be Artificially Inseminated with previously frozen semen from Tian Tian. This procedure was applied twice.
