Hexing is a foodie. He never stopped eating bamboo and the special cakes the breeders made for him during the Global Times' visit to the zoo.
Shuangxin, the eldest, is quite shy and so stayed hidden in her playground during the visit.
Bai told the Global Times that currently the zoo has no breeding plans for the pandas as that is strictly managed by the research base in Chengdu.
The four pandas have captured the attention of not only local residents, but also panda fans from around the world.
Bai said that many international fans have visited the panda house to meet the bears. "Days before, there was a fan from Japan who spent three days here just to take photos of the pandas."

To promote the pandas, the panda house has turned them into cartoon characters and designed souvenirs, such as plush toys, bags and T-shirts. The souvenirs have been hugely popular among visitors at the gift shop.
There is also a panda-themed restaurant in the house, where visitors can enjoy food while watching pandas through a big window.
