The Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls is an absolute gem.  I could watch the animals for hours.  The one thing we don't have at the GPZ is a Panda Display.

Great Plains Zoo CEO Elizabeth Whealy once told us that the cost to host Pandas is unbelievable expensive.  A fee, in the thousands of dollars per monty, has to be paid to China for the honor.

The Toronto Zoo does have a panda display.  When closed early on February 5th, 2014, due to the record-breaking snow fall, their giant panda Da Mao sure seemed to enjoy himself.

Watch what security cameras caught him doing when he thought no one was looking.  Don't you just love
