Pandas living abroad · Qatar｜Jingjing and Sihai embrace their 'luxurious life' in Doha
The World Cup in Qatar is in full swing, attracting the world's attention. A pair of Chinese pandas, Sihai and Jingjing, arrived in Qatar in the middle of last month.
As the first Chinese pandas to live in the Middle East, "Sihai" and "Jingjing" enjoy the highest level of treatment. In their new home at the Qatar Panda House, they each have their own private garden and pool, a team of seven people to look after them, and bamboo airlifted from Sichuan.
Cissy, who is a native of Hong Kong and an expert in taking care of pandas, tells DDN reporters that the two pandas have fully adapted to life in Qatar and have gained five kilograms in weight. Cissy laughs that if they keep gaining weight, they may have to go on a diet.
Before taking up this job, Cissy worked at Hong Kong Ocean Park for more than 10 years and also at a panda house in Canada. When it comes to the characteristics of "Sihai" and "Jingjing", she laughs and says that "Jingjing", who is now four years old, loves to eat and sleep, and enjoys lying in the sun the most.
