15-year wait ends as pandas arrive


After a 15 year wait Drusillas Park welcomed two red pandas to the award-winning zoo this week.

Pandas Tibao and Mulan are the latest arrivals. at Drusillas.

Manager Sue Woodgate said: “I was so excited after being on the waiting list for 15 years. I have always wanted to bring red pandas to Drusillas and was even happier when we were told we could have Mulan too.”

Head Keeper, Mark Kenward travelled to Devon to collect 8 month old Mulan and she was introduced to Tibao at Drusillas on 28 March. So far the signs have been encouraging and the pair have settled well, getting to know each other and their

new surroundings.
