The Bamboo Boogaloo

Gao Gao spent a LOT of time this morning scent-marking all over the enclosure, not just on or near the gate.

Bai Yun came over a few times and sneered at him, then flipped her tail and walked away again. Talk about playing hard-to-get....

And then... SHE came to the gate looking for HIM, and he wasn't there!

Right about then, they switched the live cam over to Yun Zi's enclosure.......

Later, a new zoo blog entry was posted with the happy news that the happy couple finally had a successful rendezvous.

Which means we might, just might, hear the pitter-patter of new fuzzy feet this fall. ::fingers crossed::

Too Big To Sit On It Anymore

Yun Zi is back in the "classroom" exhibit, where Bai Yun the Mommy Monster infamously pushed him off the drinker when he had the audacity to climb up there one day....

Goodness gracious, that was a whole year and 4 months ago!

Not Quite Yet.

Bai Yun is playing hard-to-get.

Shortly after that video was captured, Gao Gao tried his pole-dance maneuver, and now he's in the midst of the "I'll turn my back on you and sulk" maneuver.

Stay tuned, and thanks to Doxiemom for the video.

Bungle In The Jungle Imminent

Or so it seems.

At the San Diego Zoo, Bai Yun is pacing, and Gao Gao keeps sniffing at the howdy gate. See, the big Stud Muffin (tm) knows there's a soon-to-be-ready female nearby, and he doesn't want to miss his opportunity. The two bears can see each other, but a grating still separates them.

This morning, the live cam showed a couple of apparent zoo employees with clipboards standing on the walkway, observing the action. After the zoo opened, apparent members of the public were seen also on the walkway, so evidently it's not time quite yet, because when it IS time, they will clear the public out of the exhibit, then open the grating, and if all goes well, there will be a new cub come August.
