 Thanks to Chet @ Flickr for these beautiful pictures of Bi Li & Xiannu.


Bili & Xiannu arrived in Japan, this morning.

“To prepare for the celebrities, Ueno Zoo has spent about 90 million yen ($1 million) renovating its panda cage, including fitting a floor heating system and a new playground, local media reported.”

“Airline staff welcomed the animals, with one donning a panda costume, as the cages were moved out of the airline. They held signs reading: “Welcome to Japan, dear pandas.”

I wish Japan all the success with Bili & Xiannu.
