Who is Huan Huan ?

Huan Huan is a female relatively calm and docile, that gladly accepts the medical trainings. It has a great confidence with the carers team that takes care of it daily. Therefore, after the mating period, Huan Huan regularly makes echographies made on a voluntary basis. Some urine samples are daily made in order to check the health of our ursidae. Some blood samples can also be made for a full medical exam. Thanks to the confident relationship that the carers have been able to settle with Huan Huan, it accepts to go wee-wee on demand, to give its arm for a blood sample or to lay down on its back for the veterinary to practice his manipulation.

Une journée type de Madame Huan Huan - Huan Huan - Panda géant - ZooParc de Beauval

A standard day of Mrs Huan Huan

Sleeping... stretching... sleeping again... changing position...and then savor some bamboos that its took great care to peel. This is, more or less, the standard day resume of our female panda! To this, we have to add the medical trainings that it realizes according its goodwill and its desire of apples! Yes, yes, its apples desire, as Mrs Huan Huan does not realize these exercises to be nice to its carers, but also by love of good food. Apple is its guilty pleasure...
