Chinese giant pandas make public debut in new South Korean home

Munching on bamboo, rolling about and occasionally napping, on-loan Chinese giant pandas Ai Bao and Le Bao made their public debut at a theme park in South Korea on Thursday. The pair from China’s Sichuan province will live at Everland, an amusement park in Yongin, south of Seoul with its own zoo, on a 15-year loan as agreed by the two countries during a 2014 summit. Two-year-old female Ai Bao and three-year-old male Le Bao had been under quarantine before making their highly-anticipated appearance, which drew visitors of all ages including children dressed in panda costumes and carrying panda soft toys.Animal and Pet News
