Pandas Separated to Avoid Fights
Adjust font size:

Panda Rongrong, Ya'ao and Tongtong play in the Shanghai Wildlife Park on Friday, March 23, 2007. The park plans to invest eight million yuan (US$1 million) to rebuild its panda area so the three adult pandas can live in separate spaces.


The Shanghai Wildlife Park has restored its panda area for the three pandas to live separately so they don't fight each other, officials said on Friday.


The 2,000-square-meter "panda plaza" includes rocks and a little creek for the pandas, which moved to the park from the Wolong Nature Reserve in Sichuan Province last April.


Temperatures in the plaza will be kept between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius all year long, said the park. The whole project cost the park eight million yuan (US$1 million), according to park official Su Feilong.


"The three pandas, Rongrong, Ya'ao and Tongtong, were born in 2004, and are now physically mature," said Su. "If they kept living together, they will likely fight with each other."


Rongrong has been moved into a separate space in the plaza, and the other two will be separated soon, said Su.
