So far, all is well. Sorry it's not a live link, but I'm in school and in a hurry. The Pandas are going to be taking a crash course in different Chinese dialects....for Tai it's Mandarin!!

FOB Webmaster 02/05/10 02:44 pm The Washington Post said:

In fact, Tai Shan was so busy chewing that he barely slept during the 15.5-hour flight, officials said.

He munched his way through forty pounds of bamboo, three pounds of pears and two pounds of apples as the plane made its way through Canada and the North Atlantic. He ate over Norway, into Russia and past Kazahkstan and, finally, into China.

He was still chewing on the last of his food when Nicole Meese, the panda's main keeper during his 4.5 years at the National Zoo, handed off responsibility for taking care of Tai Shan to her Chinese counterpart Wu Daifu.

"I knew he'd do well but this was beyond what I expected," Meese said. "The flight didn't faze him at all."

Good Luck big boy!
