On the 29th December 2009 our news blog with over 2000 entries was taken down by blogger on suspicion of it being a `spamblog`. Whether this was as a result of malicious intent by persons unknown (well, we know perfectly well who they are, but you know what I mean), or as a result of over zealous spambots. However at the CFZ we like to take inspiration from the best, and so - like London's Windmill Theatre who presented nude tableaux vivant throughout WW2 - We Never Close!

Baby Panda Shows His Bounce Back Ability

San Diego Zoo's newest baby panda, Yun Zi, made his media debut by showing off his bounce back ability.

The five month old giant panda cub climbed a tree branch, fell off, and promptly climbed back on.

The zoo's senior keeper, Kathy Hawk, said: "It's all part of the learning process."

She added it would help Yun Zi help get his "climbing legs going."

The cub's mother, Bai Yun, was equally unpeturbed.

She looked on proudly as her bubbly baby boy performed for the cameras.
