Ling-Ling–the female half (pictured right) of the couple brought to America by Richard Nixon in 1972 as a result of his initial peacemaking visits to China–died suddenly yesterday at the age of 23. She was the oldest living panda of her kind, outside of China, living in captivity.
We will miss little Ling-Ling, and we feel we knew her well. Here’s hoping she’s relaxing right now in a bamboo supernova in the sky. We’ll miss her fuzzy face!
