Did you know…

… that today is Giant Panda Day? This week in 1936, the first live giant panda from China was brought to the United States by clothing designer Ruth Harkness. Named Su-Lin, the male bear cub arrived in San Francisco and was subsequently sold to the Brookfield Zoo near Chicago for $8,750. It marked the beginning of an extensive series of pandas going abroad from China.
