Wang Wang and Funi

 A work training day held at the Adelaide Zoo gave me the opportunity to see the two resident giant pandas, Wang Wang and Funi for the first time.  I was very happy about this!

The only giant pandas in the Southern Hemisphere, Wang Wang and Funi have been brought here as part of an international breeding programme.

 While Wang Wang sensibly slept in his air-conditioned enclosure, Funi was very active.  Despite the extreme heat of the day, she walked around constantly, took a bath, and even climbed a couple of trees where food was hidden.   It was a wonderful sight.

I don't know how she did it, in that thick fur coat.  I was wilting in a skirt and tshirt (and heels, of course)!
