Author: teddygirl | Saturday December 03, 2005
On November 29th, Tai Shan, the hottest celebrity in Washington, D.C., made his first appearance in front of the media. More than 100 reporters were there to see the panda cub, and they did so in 5 different shifts. The cub is now 21 pounds and 4.5 months old.
Tai Shan tried to impress the reporters by showing off his climbing skills. He climbed on the ledges of the rocks and fell on his back one time. The cub is confident and assertive.
Tai Shan will make his official public debut on December 8th, and the first round of 13,000 tickets sold out in 2 hours.
