Tai Shan's Last Snowy DC Romp Before Dulles—Chengdu Direct

Tai Shan's Last Snowy DC Romp Before Dulles—Chengdu Direct

The beloved National Zoo panda took a one-way direct flight from Dulles to Chengdu, China (in that nifty crate) this morning. Sad.
There's no passport necessary as this US-born babe is headed home to meet some pretty female pandas, fingers crossed. As part of the conservation and breeding program, the giant creatures — including parents Mei Xiang and Tian Tian — were just on loan and now the five-year-old's off to hopefully help keep the species alive for future animal lovers 'round the world.

That is sooo cute. My favorite animals are panda bears and penguins. Funny they are both black and white. I wish to one day pet a panda bear and stand in front of it. They are the most beautiful creatures.
