Meet the Pandas

Jinke has a lively and carefree personality, and his favorite way to eat his food is lying on his back. His birthday is on July 15.

Shenbin's birthday is August 20. Her name means "gentleperson" in Chinese.

To keep the pandas stimulated, their caretakers have switched their enclosures. Yaoman and Yaoxin used to share this enclosure with Shenbin.
