Panda Live in Chiang Mai Zoo
In 2001, The vice-prime minister
and minister of defence (a full general Chawalit Yongjaiyut)
talked with the president and prime minister of The People's
Republic of China about the giant panda.
He wanted to display giant panda in Thailand. The government
of China was glad to give 1 pair of giant panda for friendship
ambassador and celebration of Her Majesty the Queen's 6 cycle
birthday anniversary in 2004. So, that is the reason for the
project for panda research and display in Thailand.
The government of Thailand entrusted the Zoological Park Organization
to take responsibility for these very rare giant panda. They
are on display at Chiangmai Zoo in Chiangmai province.

Accession to the Throne. Now, let's welcome a newborn baby
Koalas, which are native to Australia, weigh about 9 kilogrammes
each on average. “Koala” is an Aboriginal word,
meaning “no drink”. The animals get water from
their chief food, eucalyptus or gum leaves.
The koala is sometimes called “koala bear” although
it is not a member of the bear family but a marsupial like
the kangaroo and the wombat. The trait distinguishing marsupials
from other mammals is that they carry their young in pouches.
Female koalas take 2 to 3 years to reach productive age while
males take 3 to 4 years. A healthy female koala can bear one
offspring yearly for about 12 years.
