Weight 
You’re each right around 110 pounds (oof!).

Your favorite snacks 
Bamboo, obviously. And anything sweet, like sugarcane and bananas.

Your favorite nap spots 
Mei Huan likes to lounge poolside. Mei Lun passes out by the pine trees.

It’s so cute when you
Play and wrestle with each other

But it’s not so funny when you 
Fight over who gets the tire swing

How you and your sister are alike 
You always want what the other has—toys, food, seats.

And how you are different 
Mei Huan is impatient, with more energy than Kung Fu Panda. Mei Lun is laid-back and Zen.

On the calendar: Zoo Atlanta celebrates two years of panda cuteness with a behind-the-scenes birthday bash at the Giant Panda Birthday Extravaganza on July 11 and birthday celebrations on July 15 and 18.
