Beary Goofy Pandas For National Panda Day (Pics)

Happy national panda day, everyone! It's time to give some love to the biggest goofballs in the animal kingdom. They are floofy, they are cuddly, they clumsy, silly, and far more dangerous than anyone would ever think when looking at their pictures. 

Pandas are some of our absolute favorite animals. And given their extremely huggable qualities and their goofier than life nature, we think that they should probably be on everyone's favorite animals list. They are, of course, also endangered, and we're always concerned about them. So, the more opportunities we get to give them love, the better.

The claims that pandas are just toddlers in fuzzy suits just gets stronger and stronger with each passing video we see. Panda cubs are insanely adorable and hopeless, we don't know how they survive in the wild but they are national treasures and must be protected at all costs. 

Can you imagine having this be your job? Getting to take care and play with panda cubs all day? It's our ultimate dream job! Who wouldn't want to hang out with these fuzzy goofballs 24/7? Apparently, becoming a panda cub nanny isn't even that difficult to achieve! 

The adorable panda cub in the video is called Ji Xiao and as much as her nanny wants her to be interested in the fancy new rocking horse, Ji Xiao isn't that interested. Maybe if they considered making the rocking horse out of bamboo, then it would be a different story.

This is so precious and quite the perfect snow day! Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, two giant pandas at the Smithsonian's national zoo took advantage of this wintery weather and went out to play in the snow! And from what we're seeing, looks like they had a lot of fun. Why go sledding down a snow-covered hill when you can simply slide down it on your back? 

These pandas seem to be really living in this moment and we can't help but smile at their playful interaction. We hope this video provides you with some smiles as well! Have a great day!

Oh, be still our beating hearts! Pandas are already naturally adorable but this loving footage is simply the cutest! Nothing in this world is more precious than a loving relationship between parents and children, for humans and animals. This lovely mama has a baby cub named Pubao, who has already grown into a kid! The way she looks at her baby is enough to melt hearts around the world.

This mama loves her baby and is constantly caring for it. It's a beautiful and intimate moment between mama and baby and we're lucky enough to see it. And don't worry, these two don't live in this small cage, they mostly live in a space similar to the nature of 3,000 square meters outside the breeding grounds and are not locked up in that cage all day long! 

Congrats on the beautiful baby, loving mama!

Happy And Awwdorable Red Pandas

Does one really need a reason for displaying a bunch of really, really, really cute red pandas? We think not. 

The holiday season is upon us and winter is definitely already here! Did you know that Wintertime is a red panda's favorite time of the year? Red panda love playing in the snow and they can withstand cold temperatures up to -30 degrees!

Not only is Winter their favorite season, but it may also just become ours after learning that when a red panda is cold, they use their cute fluffy tail as a blanket and wrap it around their bodies. If that isn't the cutest thing you've heard all day, you are lying to yourself. 

Get ready for some red panda cuteness coming at you real fast!

It's impossible not to smile when seeing these adorable panda cubs drinking and enjoying some milk whilst laying on their backs. It's simply too cute to process so we're malfunctioning here just a little bit. 

These adorable panda cubs you see in the video are from the Chongqing Zoo, Class of 2019. During their milk time, they are brought outside and each provided a bottle. One panda cub can't seem to help but kick up their little feet while drinking the milk and we're very much in love with that small, simple act. 

These panda cub nannies are living the dream!

How are pandas so ridiculously cute ALL the time? Seriously, everything we've ever seen a panda do is either adorable, ridiculous, or both! Most of the time it's both. They are just ridiculously cute. Pandas act as if they are little toddlers dressed up in a bear suit and we will always watch everything shenanigans they get themselves into! 

Panda nannies are living the life dealing with those fluffy drunken toddlers. Did you know it's a real professional and one where you make 32 a year? Oh, plus meals and transit, and accommodations. Oh, and you're also required to send 365 days with pandas. Talk about a dream!

This panda, named Shuang Shuang is rolling around in an attempt to grab his nanny's attention! We know it certainly grabbed ours!

Giant Panda Cub Gets Named And Its A True 'Little Miracle'

We've an update about one of the most positive stories to come out of 2020, and the update is just as wholesome as the original story. The (tiny) giant panda cub that was born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo three weeks ago has finally gotten a name, and it is the most appropriate and cutest name of all. Xiao Qi Ji is his name in Chinese, but it translates to 'little miracle' in English. 

The little giant panda has gone absolutely viral in the past couple of weeks after a video of his miraculous birth was released by the zoo, and since the world fell in love with the cub, the zoo decided to let the world participate in naming him. Of course, the internet does not disappoint when it comes to baby animals. 

We were given a choice of 4 names, and after three weeks and nearly 135,000 votes that have been cast, the adorable name 'little miracle' was chosen. The long waiting period was not an accident, it is part of Chinese tradition to wait 100 days before naming the cub. We wish the little cub luck and prosperity, and for his mother, Mei Xiang, to have many more adorable healthy cubs in the future!

The first snows are fiiiinally starting, and all of us winter lovers can breathe in a fresh, cold sigh of relief. The coats are out, the boots are on, and the pandas are frolicking the the fresh snow. And we can't think of anything better than these adorable, fluffy, warm and cuddly messes of panda playing around in snow. 

They're adorable in any weather, don't get us wrong. But my goodness, there is something so uniquely adorable in watching them covered in snow, slipping around, and falling off snow covered trees. Watching this make us wish we could join them in there and roll around until we're frozen too. Only to then get warmed up in with panda snuggles, of course.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Panda, The Chonky Bear

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Panda, the chonky bear

Meet Panda, the gorgeous and quite chonky 5-year-old Maine Coon! We were able to get in touch with Panda's owner, Courtney Culligan, and find out Panda's story. "A distant family friend couldn't care for him anymore so my boyfriend's family took him in. They quickly realized a few members of their family were allergic and couldn't keep him - so we took him in!" Courtney tells us.

Upon taking Panda to the vet, they were told Panda was between the ages of 3-7, so they call him "a fabulous 5-year-old." Panda was initially a stray cat, which was made obvious due to the universal sign of a stray cat being fixed - a chipped ear tip. A stray cat who found himself in the right hands! When Courtney first got Panda, he was overweight. Since rescuing him back in February 2019, Panda has lost 3.5 lbs! 

When it comes to Panda's personality, Courtney shared, "He is extremely cuddly and seems like he's constantly purring. He LOVES carrying his toys around the house (like his mini panda). He loves chicken and turkey wet food, hates our vacuum and trash bags, and adores pretty much everyone he meets."

Panda is often featured carrying around his stuffed toys, especially his little panda, and it's probably the most important thing you'll see all day, trust us. Be sure to follow Panda on Instagram to witness his weight loss journey, and of course, watch him be his adorable floofy self! 

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Thor, the flying cat!

This insanely adorable video of pandas playing and rolling around with balls brings up one of life's most important questions - what's rounder, a ball or a rolled up panda? 

Having watched this video in its entirety multiple times, we can say with absolute certainty that... we have no idea. Sometimes, you look at the frames in this video and think to yourself: "where is the panda, I only see the balls." But alas, the panda is there. It's just rounder than you could ever expect.

Then again, maybe you would expect such confusion when it comes to pandas, since it is a known fact that pandas are basically always a mess. We love them for that exact reason though. Who doesn't love watching a panda stumble around in all its glorious cuteness?

Panda Memes Are Always Adorable

Ah pandas... if we had to pick one wild animal to cuddle, they might just be it. And listen, we know they can be dangerous, but they're just so adorable, of course we would want to cuddle them. We're the same people who'd want to cuddle lions though, so maybe we're not the most objective judges. 

Pandas are just so fluffy, they seem so sweet, they're unfortunately still at risk, and they're also huge messes in pictures which makes them extremely memeable. We've decided to show some love to this cuddly, clumsy, and absolutely adorable big bear by giving you the most pandabulous memes today. We also wish you a wonderful weekend with many, many enormous feel-good bear hugs.

collection of panda memes thumbnail includes two pictures including one of a panda sitting with its back to the camera looking all sad 'Panda - no talk with me, am angry' and another of a panda bear next to the same panda bear but without the black around its eyes 'Nose - When your friend with glasses takes his glasses off'

A huge congrats to the attentive and caring mother, Mei Xiang! 

According to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the moment the cub was born on August 21st, Mei Xiang picked up the newborn cub and immediately began to cradle and care for it. Just like any loving and devoted mother would. 

Animal care staff heard the cub vocalize and were able to catch a glimpse of the newborn. As of now, the team is monitoring Mei Xiang and her cub via the Zoo's panda cams. From what the team has observed so far, the panda cub appears to be strong and healthy.
