Gan Cao the Rejected Panda #8 of the Boo Boo Babe Art Doll series
Meet Gan Cao, a panda twin who was rejected by her narcisissitic personality disorder mother, who only cared for her twin brother. Zookeepers believe this was because Gan Cao's ears did not match. Her Chinese name translated means Licorice Root, a common herb used in traditional Chinese medicine. Raised by caring zoo-keepers, Gan Cao survived her bizarre childhood, yet was heartbroken that her mother did not love her. After many years of therapy, wearing comfy panda pajamas while snacking on organic Panda Licorice she found peace of mind. She now happily resides in a lovely wild animal park while tending to all the rejected panda twins as if they were her own children. (Her twin brother still lives at home with his overbearing mother.)
This article published in National Geographic was the inspiration for this Boo Boo Panda art doll.
"While twin giant panda births have been rare in U.S. zoos, they are actually quite common: In the wild and at other zoos around the world, giant panda mothers give birth to twins about 50 percent of the time, explained Zoo Atlanta's curator of mammals, Rebecca Snyder.
However, due to the difficulty of caring for two cubs simultaneously, typically only one of the twins survives. Giant panda newborns are even more helpless than most other mammal infants because they don't open their eyes until they are about six to eight weeks old and don't move around until about three months."
