Adelaide Zoo Throws A Birthday Party For Their Giant Panda

Fu Ni celebrated her ninth birthday in style!

The birthday panda was treated to special panda treats and visitors to the zoo signed her panda-sized birthday card.

This marks the fifth birthday Fu Ni has celebrated in Australia since arriving at Adelaide Zoo in 2009.

“The Zoo is abuzz with excitement preparing for Fu Ni’s special day. We’ve had help from across the organisation to create a fun and stimulating environment for the birthday girl by decorating her home with colourful streamers, a specially made ice-block cake and enrichment treats,” said Adelaide Zoo Panda Keeper Monika Lapka.

“Fu Ni will certainly relish all the attention and show us her playful side as she rips into her birthday presents. She may have grown into a more mature panda over the last few years, but thankfully her playful nature is a part of her personality that has not changed!”
