Bai Yun

Proud new parents

San Diego Zoo logo

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

There have been rumors (rumours for my Canadian, British, and possibly Australian friends) for a couple of months that Bai Yun, the oldest female giant panda at the San Diego Zoo, might be pregnant. Rumours proved true yesterday at 2:10 p.m.

So little still is known about giant pandas that it’s always difficult to tell, even though the Zoo has some pretty good records from Bai Yun’s previously successful pregnancies in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009. Dad, once again, is Gao Gao.

The little one won’t be named until the 100th day in keeping with Chinese custom, and it won’t be available for the general public to see for six or seven months. Until that time, following are some of my best pictures of Bai Yun and Gao Gao.

Ladies first. Bai Yun:

Newborn pandas weigh about 3½ ounces at birth. Apparently that is about the size of a stick of butter, but I haven’t seen a stick of butter in 3½ decades……

Look what happens when I play Docent

San Diego Zoo logo

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

Early this morning I met a virtual friend at the San Diego Zoo and spent two hours traipsing around playing Docent for a Day. (Remember that if you ever come to San Diego, call me because I might have free tickets to the Zoo, Safari Park, or SeaWorld, and with enough warning, I’m always happy to play Docent for a Day.)

The Zoo animals were particularly active and photogenic this morning, which always makes me feel good because I don’t want to docent (!) someone around the Zoo and see empty cages of hiding animals.

Maybe the animals know when I’m playing Docent for a Day and that they have to be on their best and most photogenic behavior………….

Here are a few of the great pictures I got this morning in just two hours:
