With a long bamboo pole where an apple was tied, Hollywood actor Lee Pace fed four pandas to the cheers of onlookers in the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda in Sichuan province on Tuesday.
Lee is known in China for his role as Thranduil in the film “The Hobbit.”
He was invited by the Chengdu panda base and Conservation International to have one-day nursing experience.
The one-day tour was quite extensive.
After visiting the Moonlight Delivery House where he learned how to feed panda cubs with bottled milk, Lee went to the Giant Panda Cub Enclosure to learn from keeper Tan Jintao how to feed sub-adult pandas an apple.
