The Giant Pandas at Dujiangyan all celebrated their birthdays this summer by being given ice cakes filled with bamboo leaves and shoots, apples, and carrots. These wonderful cakes were donated to the Pandas by the many supporters of Pandas International.
Ice is a very rare commodity in China making it much harder to make these wonderful enrichment treats for the Pandas. The big huge ice blocks the pandas lay on take almost 3 weeks to make and the cakes themselves took over 3 days to make. We are thankful for the amazing staff at Dujiangyan who took the extra time to make these delicious treats for the Pandas.
Pan Pan also got to enjoy in the fun celebrating his 31st birthday. Due to Pan Pan’s aging teeth, he was given a bamboo bread cake instead of an ice cake.
