      This exhibit looks like it will get pretty hot in the peak of summer. Is the bit out of view more shaded?
    • Electus Parrot
      Yes the bit that you can't see (behind) is shaded by a large Moretan Bay fig, but doesn't provide a massive amount of shade.

      i like the look of the exhibit, but I'd also be concerned about the temperature the rocks emit.

      That glass barrier doesn't look too tall - were there hotwires at the base of it?

      Pandas have never struck me as being very agile. Will all the rock limit the available space for the pandas to use?
    • Electus Parrot
      From the bottom of the fence to the ground it isroughly 1.5m. I couldn't see hotwire but because the line was pushing on and I couldn't stop to look I was unable to get a proper look.

      1.5 metres?

      Hmmm, seems a little low to me.
    • Electus Parrot
      May have been more, 1.5m is just an estimate.
    • PAT
      And do I remember right that they want to move gorillas in when the pandas leave?

      If so then the exhibit will need major works done to it.
