Goodbye my Gao Gao :(

Gao Gao, a giant panda who lived at the San Diego Zoo for many years, returned to China this week. The panda was in San Diego on a research loan agreement with the People's Republic of China as conservationists worked to save the species from the verge of extinction over the past couple of decades.

1. I hope he is happy in his new home.

How often did you get down there to see him?. I hope the SF Zoo is doing well. I live in Portland Oregon now & the Zoo is a very good Zoo. No Panda's but we do elephants right. Their brand new swimming pool is awesome.

I really miss Leon's BBQ across the street from the SF Zoo-is it still there?

Cheers!

2. Thank you, but I'm the Yoshida from San Diego lol

And I saw Gao Gao MANY times with my zoo season pass, he was always my favorite because he was so playful. I literally could watch him eat bamboo leaves all day but they keep people moving due to the popularity. We still have pandas but I will miss him the most!

3. My bad...

I try to keep up on my old turf from her posts....

But being nearsighted and ignoring my need for glasses-sitting right on my table-probably had a play in the mistake.
Howdy-check out our Zoo if you ever get up here.

5. Is he or she the only panda at San Diego Zoo?

I can understand why he(she) will be missed.
