Category: Press Statements
During a family trip in China’s densely vegetated bamboo forest, rattle snake Sascha has lost his parents. Now, he wiggles around the forest to trace his parents, constantly rattling his tail so they won’t accidentally miss each other. The disadvantage: When other animals hear Sascha’s rattling, they get frightened and run away.
The rattling makes snake Sascha really tired and he falls asleep. Being asleep, he stops rattling. That is why panda Yaa Boo does not detect him while settling down for breakfast at a nearby spot.
When he wakes up, Sascha hears some noise next to him. He is happy to have found his parents again and rattles cheerfully with his tail. That is when Yaa Boo notices him, but he is not afraid of the small rattle snake and does not get worked up by him. Sascha tells the panda what he experienced and soon the two dissimilar animals become friends. After breakfast, Ya Boo accompanies Sascha to trace his parents.

The new Wild Friends product line hosts numerous useful accessories and gift ideas.
