CHENGDU, May 16 (Xinhua) -- Two giant pandas have returned to China after staying in the United States for years.
Twenty-seven-year-old female giant panda Bai Yun and her son, six-year-old Xiao Liwu, arrived in southwest China's Sichuan Province Thursday, after the San Diego Zoo's conservation loan agreement with China ended.
As the first panda on loan, Bai Yun arrived at the San Diego Zoo in 1996. The cuddly panda soon became an iconic image of the zoo and one of the most popular animals. The name of her son, Xiao Liwu, means Little Gift. Enditem
