The specificities of our male panda

Yuan Zi is a great male of about 110 kilos. It has a stature more impressive that the female and walks with self-confidence, especially before the photographs in front of which it likes to strut. It even seems to appreciate posing! Speaking of posing, Yuan Zi has a specific manner to mark its territory... it is not rare to see him legs in the air and the head down!

Une journée type de Monsieur Yuan Zi

With it meaningful look, Yuan Zi watch out for the arrival of its carers every morning (or maybe only for the bamboos they carry...) and come to meet them. During the day, it appreciates particularly to savor its bamboo in public, seated on its behind, covered with branches and leaves. After a good meal, it can usually be observed at the top of a tree where it likes to take a nap.
