Day 168 – The San Diego Zoo Spoon

I’m finishing off a week of zoo spoons with yet another zoo I’ve never been to: The San Diego Zoo. 

In 1999, a female giant panda named Hua Mei was born at the zoo. In 2004, she became the first giant panda cub to survive to adulthood in the United States. She was promptly shipped off to China, where she has since had 10 babies, including 3 sets of twins. 

Day 164 – The Toronto Zoo Spoon

This spoon from the Metro Toronto Zoo in Toronto, Ontario, Canada was made in 1985 for the visit of two Pandas from the Peoples’ Republic of China, Qing Qing and Quan Quan. I guess that’s why it says “Panda Visit” at the top.
