Animal Diplomacy.........

Tian Tian
Hullo ma wee blog,

Hullaballo and cute photo opportunities abound with the announcement that two breeding age giant pandas are being given by China to Edinburgh Zoo.



 The bears Tian Tian and Yangguang, a breeding pair born in 2003, will be under the custodianship of the zoo society.  The project represents the culmination of five years of political and diplomatic negotiation at the highest level and it is anticipated the giant pandas will arrive in their new home in Edinburgh as soon as a date is agreed. The gifting of these animals is a diplomatic gesture symbolising hoped for closer ties between China and the UK.

But wait a minute.

Is this for real?

Is this an offer made in black and white?

Do we have to Panda to the Chinese from now on?

Frankly I'm bamboo-zled....

Still on a cheerier note - at least they weren't gifted to Glasgow or they could have ended up like this alleged pair of Rangers supporters !



 
Animal diplomacy has been around for centuries. Numerous governments have been brought down by a coo!

OK. OK. I'm sorry!!!

See you later

I've always been so grateful NOT to be a Panda .,.,especially a BREEDING Panda .,.,
Has anybody ever seen a giant Panda that looks in any way different from all other giant Pandas ?

Hmmn - this never came through straight away so I missed it at the time Scudder.

I've never spent time thinking about the sex lives of Pandas before but I suppose it takes all sorts........

I see your point though.

If I looked like you I might feel the same!

All good pun!
