Taipei, 8 Aug (ZXS) -- The mainland's gift of giant panda "Yuanyuan" to Taiwan celebrated its 30th birthday on 30 August. Taipei Municipal Zoo made an ice cube cake for "Yuanyuan", and specially made a "bear angel" shape "Tuantuan" with a halo on the cake to accompany "Yuanyuan" on his birthday.

According to Taiwan media reports such as the Central News Agency and the United News Network, the mainland's giant pandas "Tuantuan" and "Yuanyuan" went to Taiwan in December 2008. Since the birthday of "Tuantuan" falls on September 12 and the birthday of "Yuanyuan" falls on August 9, every year Taipei Zoo will let "Tuantuan" and "Yuanyuan" celebrate their birthdays together. After "Tuan Tuan" died of illness in November last year, "Yuanyuan" celebrated his birthday alone this time.

According to reports, at 9:30 a.m. that day, the nursery worker took out a cake to arrange the birthday scene, and let the birthday star "Yuanyuan" enter. "Yuanyuan" was quite excited to see the cake, and rushed to the cake to grab his favorite apple and put it in his mouth, and then ate the sugar cane. It seems that he is accustomed to facing the media camera, and "Yuanyuan" does not have the slightest sense of tension and calmly enjoys the cake. Happy birthday songs were played at the scene, and many people sang together.

Chen Yuyan, director of the Giant Panda Museum, said in an interview with the media that this year's cake of "Yuanyuan" is very special, and the nursery staff carved ice cubes into the shape of a book, and made some special shapes with the ingredients that "Yuanyuan" liked, as if recording the life course of "Yuanyuan" such as birth, coming to Taiwan, and production. The most special thing is that there is also a "bear angel" shape on the cake.

Chen Yuyan said that the nurses still miss "Tuantuan" very much, so they specially made a "bear angel" with a halo on his head and wings to commemorate it, "It's like 'Tuantuan' as before, accompanying 'Yuanyuan' on his birthday." ”

According to reports, 19-year-old "Yuanyuan" is about 60 years old for humans, although various health examination indicators are very excellent, but teeth have congenital dentin easy wear, poor gum condition and other problems, so now the care of "Yuanyuan" is particularly focused on dental care.
