One of our panda pals, Danielle, NY has put together some great links for us about how well Fu Hu is doing at Zoo Vienna as well as his mom and dad.
First off, Samsung in Austria has offered to donate 1 euro to Fu Hu for every online supporter. Awesome!
All you need to do is go to the Samsung/Panda website, click on the button that says, “Ja, ich möchte Pate werden”. For every person who signs in before May 1, 2011 they are donating 1 euro. The maximum donation will be 10000 euro.
Thank You also to Jeroen Jacobs who has his own panda website GiantPandaZoo who announced the news of Samsung and their money raising venture.
Here is what the zoo tells us about their pandas on Zoo Vienna's panda blog .

"Even though the winter and low temperatures can not harm the giant pandas, they appreciate a hay-bed for sleeping. Therefore at present not only the small young Fu Panda Hu has gets a thick Heuschichte in and around the birthing den, but Papa Long Hui Daily fresh hay storage. This is both at night and during the day used for an extended nap." This video was from pandanews08.

"For a few days Fu Hu leaves again and again the birthing den and padded across the room in which it is located. This area is for visitors only poorly visible through a door. "The first mini-round before the birthing den Fu Hu Yang Yang has no shot. Now it has taken him but even from the birthing den or is it followed her own boss, "says zoologist Eveline Dungan."
How adventurous Fu Hu will be in the next few weeks, has not yet been estimated. writes Schratter weiter. "We do not know whether it still herauskrabbelt regularly from the birthing den and can catch the visitors with the best of luck through the doorway a glimpse of him," said zoo director Dagmar Schratter. It also is unclear when the panda offspring trust in the indoor unit and the visitors as the final. "In principle, it naturally every day be far off. His brother Fu Long has made the first trip out of the birthing den at the same time. The last hurdle to the interior, however, until late January, he has taken," said Schratter further."
