Remember DC’s first panda cub Tai Shan? From the National Zoo:

“This giant panda update was written by biologist Laurie Thompson.

As part of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute’s ongoing collaboration with our Chinese panda colleagues, panda keeper Becky Malinsky and I were able to spend 10 days visiting three giant panda bases earlier this spring…

Dujiangyan is a research facility closed to the public, and it is quiet and very beautiful. Our first panda cub Tai Shan lives there. (Though, he’s not a cub anymore.) We were able to visit with both Tai and his keeper Lui Yi. Tai Shan did not recognize our voices, but that was not unexpected. It has been 5 years since he moved. We were thrilled to see, that he seems to adore his keeper. And Pan Pan (who is Tai’s 30 year-old grandfather) lives right next door to Tai!”
