According to Chinese-Austrian cooperation agreement of the giant panda research, the giant pandas "Long Hui" and "Yang Yang" were sent to the Austria on March 3, 2003, and have a 10-year sojourn. In the morning of August 8, 2007, the giant panda “Yang Yang” gave birth to a pair of twins, while one of them survived, with a birth weight of 100 g and birth length of 10 cm, and called “Mini” by the keeper. He is the first panda baby born in Europe by natural mated.
In the end of 2007, this baby gained the name of "Fu Long" from Austrian public through internet voting, which means "the dragon of happiness." Through the two years in Austria, the panda Fu Long has established a profound friendship with the Austrian people, and become a symbol of friendship between the two countries-China and Austria. According to the agreement, the giant panda “Fu Long” should be returned to China, when he is two years old.
