One of Toronto’s twin baby giant pandas naps after entertaining zoo patrons while the parent chews on a bamboo snack. Born October 31 the baby is starting to look like a real giant panda.
Elsewhere in the zoo the marabou stork was having a quiet think. Hopefully this wasn’t the stork that delivered the panda twins, because if it was, they will need therapy.
