Panda fruitcicle

Giant Panda Tian Tian enjoys a fruitcicle at the Smithsonian Institution's National Zoo in Washington, DC. The snack is made with apples and pears frozen in apple juice. Tian Tian was on hand for the ceremony to sign a new loan agreement, the Giant Panda Cooperative Research and Breeding Agreement between the US and China which allows the giant pandas to remain at the zoo for five more years.
