Tai Shan to stay at National Zoo for 2 More Years

Tai Shan, the cub born to the new pair of pandas in Washington D.C.'s National Zoo, will remain in the US for another two years.

Under the original agreement with China, any cubs born to the pair will return to China after their second birthday for breeding.

"As an envoy of goodwill from the Chinese people and a symbol of friendly cooperation between China and the United States, Tai Shan will continue to bring more happiness and delight to the American people, especially the Washingtonians, who care for him and have given him so much love," said Chinese Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong.
