Tai-Shan is a lazy Prince

We went to the National Zoo with some friends before Pesah and saw the new baby Panda.

His name is Tai-Shan, so I wore my Pistons hat, hoping to get an autograph. But, as you can see, he was asleep most of the time. That's him up in the tree.

Anyway, I've wanted to post these for a while, but I haven't had the time to learn how to do it.

I also took some video footage of the pandas, particularly of the father eating. He's a fat, lazy dad, lying flat on his back with his gut hanging out while he eats, which he doesn't seem to stop doing except to sleep. Meanwhile, it's the mother who tends to the baby.

The truth is that the father is separated by a barrier set up by the zoo staff, because apparently in the wild a baby panda doesn't have any interaction with its father in its developing years, so they wanted to keep it as real as possible. But it's still pretty comical to watch this Homer Simpson-esque panda just being a fat, lazy blob.

If I ever learn how to post video, my plan is to put them up here. But something tells me Blogger doesn't let you post video, so we'll see if that ever happens.
