I can certainly understand your interest in acquiring a pair of giant panda bears for the San Diego Zoo. The pair which are now at the National Zoo in Washington have been a tremendously popular attraction. Because of the rarity of these animals, however, the Chinese may be reluctant to provide us another pair.
