The two pandas arrived at the Singapore Zoo from China on a 10-year loan more than two months ago, but were quarantined as they got acclimated to their new home and routines.
The Giant Panda Forest is the first attraction at the upcoming River Safari. While other exhibits are completed, visitors enter the Panda Exhibit through the zoo right now.
Most of the zoo visitors to the new Panda exhibit on day one were children and their parents who had taken a day off from work for a family outing. Both young and old visitors were excited to see the black and white bears in the enclosure.
Their verdict of the pair? “So cute” was the common remark.
Despite being allowed only 15 minutes in the enclosure, most left the panda exhibit satisfied.
