Stone cold

Sorry, no photo yet, too carried away by being nose to nose with two real-life pandas to remember to whip out the iPhone.

Funi and Wang Wang are just gorgeous: fluffy and amenable with sweet eyes and cute habits, like perching on top of their water butts (on their butts), and being so keen to be fed chunks of panda cake through their bars that they have absolutely no reaction to having their temperatures taken ditto, RECTALLY!

I was privileged to go behind the scenes to see all this in their fancy $8 million centre at the zoo, where their inside rooms are airconditioned to 22 degrees and out in their enclosures they have internally water-cooled rocks to lie on. No expense spared.

And tomorrow we all have breakfast together!
