A Wild Giant Panda in Sichuan

Spain is one of the luck countries in the world that have built a panda diplomacy with China. In September of 1978, the King Juan Carlos I visited China and received two adult pandas as gifts - Shao Shao and her husband Qiang Qiang. They gave birth to a twin panda in 1982, but only a panda cub survived, as the first Giant Panda born by artificial insemination in captive base in whole Europe.

Let’s make our best wishes to Hua Zuiba and her lovely daughter.
