New Giant Pandas in Shanghai Zoo

Two giant pandas – Xing Er and Ya Er – recently arrived at their new home in Shanghai Zoo. The two male pandas, both two-and-a-half years old, are cousins who were raised in Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in southwest China’s Sichuan Province.

The younger of the two, Ya Er, was timid and sensitive to the new environment, at first refusing to enter their new home. Then the elder Xing Er approached and comforted him.

The language barrier is one problem that they need to tackle in adapting to the new environment. For now, they can only follow instructions in the Sichuan dialect, which is their native tongue. They will not be able to respond to the breeders if they speak Mandarin or Shanghai dialect.

Visitors will be able to see the two new residents of the zoo by May 1.
