Our visit was abbreviated –  so we headed straight for mammals.  In just two hours we managed to enjoy their three giant pandas, Mei Xiang, Tian Tian and baby Bao Bao. We rushed to the Amazonia area to see the adorable four month old Andean bear cubs Muniri and Mayni with their mother. We waved ‘hi’ to the elephants, seals and orangutans and luckily got a chance to visit the small mammal house with keeper Maria who generously gave her time to us. We fell in love with their sand cat named Thor, their South American porcupines and an adorable naked mole rat (featured above).  A shout out to my friend Nick, Ashley and Maria for making our short visit most memorable. We will be back.NATIONALZOO2015
