I went to the Shanghai Zoo today with Laura and Alex. This entire trip I have wanted to see a panda bear and finally on our last day here, I was able to see four pandas. The zoo was enormous and we spent about three hours there and didn't even see all of the animals. We saw panda bears, flamingos, lions, tigers, bears, seals, ostriches, deer, hippos, zebras, giraffes, kangaroos, camels, horses, elephants, gorillas, monkeys, lemurs, and many more animals that I had no idea what they were. My favorite animals I saw were the panda bears. We were scared we would have to wait in line to see the pandas or not be able to get very close since it was a Saturday and we thought the zoo would be packed. Surprisingly, the zoo was not very busy. We were able to get right next to the glass cage and see the pandas walk right past us. There was one panda in a cage by itself and three other pandas in another cage. These panda bears moved around a lot, climbed up against a wall, and rolled over on their head. They were very cute.
