FROM CARRIE PHILLIPS , OUR ADOPTION COORDINATOR FOR THE YIN YANG TRIBE! THANK YOU!!
You can read more about the process of adopting Bai Xue HERE
Hi Sandra, Please share this update and adorable pictures of Bai Xue with the Yin Yang Tribe. Such a cutie!
Now your baby’s weight is 112 kg. Every day it has bamboo of about 15 kg, 2,400 g Wowotou, 400 g carrot, 400 g apple and 1 kg bamboo shoot. It has a good appetite. Even though it is very hot these months, it has no influence on it’s appetite at all. But it has less movement. Most of the time, it stays in the den to for rest and sleeping. It goes into the playground to walk when it is cool. It has a good relationship with its keepers. As soon as it hears keepers are calling it, it would go to them. Very cute.
Thank you Yin Yang Tribe for your adoption!
And below you will find my latest painting I just finished yesterday, available right now as art cards and a 2011 poster style calendar, which also echos the styling of the Chinese Scroll calendars we see all over in Asia as well Chinese Restaurants in the U.S. The colors are rich and saturated yet with a softness and glow to bring out the best in this sweet child with her panda cub

Hello my friends. Oh my goodness there is so much panda news I will have to spoon it out in mini doses with todays being a cubdate on our Wood Tribe cubbie XIAO HUA (“You You”) !! Below is what Carrie received from the Panda Club at Bifengxia about your baby who is growing up SO fast!! Thank you so BEARY much for this wonderful update!!!
I hope you’re doing well! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost the end of September. Please share this recent update and adorable picture of your panda Xiao Hua (You You) with the Wood Tribe. He is so cute and he’s really grown!
Your baby was moved from Shanghai Zoo to Shanghai Wild Animal Park with other nine “Expo Pandas” on June 28 and met with the visitors on June 30. To welcome them, the park specially built an “Expo Panda House”. The Panda House occupies 10,000 sp. m, of which the exhibition area is 3,000 sq. m and the backyard and the bamboo forest is 7,000 sq. m.
The exhibition area was equipped with running water, trees, wooden swing, slides, etc, for them to play and climb. In a word, the design of the Panda House reflected the concept of ecological environmental protection and fits for the giant pandas’ lively habit. Your baby adapted to the new environment quickly. Now its weight is 64.5 kg. Every day it has bamboo of 12 kg, 600 g Wowotou, a small amount of apples and carrot and milk of two times.
Because of the hot weather these months, many pandas have less bamboo. So does your baby. That’s why it lost weight. On July 6, CCRCGP held a group birthday party for the ten “Expo Pandas” at Shanghai Wild Animal Park. Many of their adopters from all over the world came to the park to celebrate for them and give their best wishes to them. Because your baby is over two years old. The keepers are going to ablactation for them. Now they have reduced the thickness of the milk so that the pandas can finish ablactation smoothly.
Please thank the Wood Tribe for their adoption! We appreciate their support.

We are back from our trip to the panda and moonbear centers in China as well as a wonderful warm side trip in Thailand and I have so much to tell I hardly know where to start. If you have been following along on my blog at http://graffitigossip.com you know all about the panda I chose for our next group adoption via PANDAS INTERNATIONAL….a stunning (formerly) wild panda named Bai Xue
ABOVE: ME HAVING MY PHOTO TAKEN WITH “WU JUN” WHO IS TAI SHANS NEW NEIGHBOR
I chose Bai Xue for her unmistakable black “beauty mark” on her muzzle and her history of being a wild child, as she was the panda who disappeared from the panda center she was at for 5 years, then miraculously returned!! Just one look at her Bifengxia clay dipped bum and you know this girl marches to the beat of a different drummer. How endearing can one panda get….and to top it off she is a wonderful mommy at the age or 20 years it is estimated

Thank you all so very much for your support of the group adoptions at PANDARAZZI. My dream is to continue to be able to provide a way to help others be a part of these unique adoptions of the China pandas by making then affordable for all who wish to participate. A 500.00 adoption can be out of reach for many caring panda people who would love to be involved. Being part of the “adoption den” you really see your donation dollars in action!!
By providing a platform at PANDARAZZI where we all can shake down our piggy banks and pool our resources as a team , we all benefit from one anothers involvement in in turn help each panda we sponsor with plentiful bamboo, medications, round the clock TLC by the nannies and keepers. Not to mention the AWESOME updates and photos which Carrie and the Bifengxia photographers provide us during the course of the year!!j
BAI XUE SENDS HER PANDA LUV AND THANKS YOU ..XIE XIE !!!!!!
Hugs, Sandra Miller
