American-born panda twins living in China are homesick for American food

They just want crackers </3

3-year-old giant panda twins Mei Lun and Mei Huan who were born at a Zoo in Atlanta, USA are struggling to adapt to their new home in China. So much so, that they are refusing to eat the Chinese food they are being fed and just want good ol 'Murican food.

The two pandas which were the FIRST surviving giant panda twins ever to be born in the USA were relocated to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China earlier this month.

Due to the "Panda Diplomacy" program (yep, it's a thing) the little bbz had to return to China before their 4th birthday, and as you'd imagine, it's been a HUGE cultural shock.

According to local reports, the twins aren't familiar with the Chinese language and have no bloody clue what their handlers are saying. The panda are also not keen on the local cuisine and have been demanding only American crackers.

Thankfully, steps are being taken to ensure the panda girls stay healthy and happy and they're ~slowly~ becoming accustomed to their new life.

Luo Yunhong, a breeder at Chengdu has been replacing the crackers with chinese bread, People's Daily reports.

We have faith in you Panda twins, you can do it <3
