8 pandas from China earthquake's epicentre arrive in Beijing for Olympics
The pandas will spend the next six months at the Beijing Zoo on a special visit, which was planned long before the quake, for the Olympics in August.
The eight two-year-old pandas were flown to Beijing by a special plane from Chengdu, the capital of hard-hit Sichuan province in central China.
They have been under careful watch because they seemed nervous after the earthquake, sometimes eating and sleeping less.
But they appeared lively after they were put into their exhibit space at the zoo today, even putting their paws on the glass that separated them from the public.
