US-born Giant Pandas Head Back to China

Leaving on a jet plane…Tai Shan & Mei Lan Leave USA




Mei Lan of Zoo Atlanta and Tai Shan of the National Zoo in Washington were loaded into special travel crates for their flight back to their new home in Sichuan China.


In 2006, the female panda (Mei Lan) was the first cub born at the Atlanta Zoo.  She had a panda cam that was provided by EarthCam where people could watch her online.
