In 1972, China gave the U.S. a gift of two giant pandas. Hsing-Hsing and Ling-Ling were star attractions at the National Zoo for years, but first Ling-Ling and then Hsing-Hsing passed away. Now, under a new arrangement with China, the National Zoo will welcome two new pandas this month. We’ll learn about giant pandas and about how the National Zoo will care for "Tian Tian" and "Mei Xiang."
