Panda Triplets Turn One Month Old

the daily squee
So Tiny!

These little pandas turned one-month old this week! The newborn bears live in a Chinese zoo, where they are believed to be the world’s only set of panda triplets. Sure, they aren’t much to look at yet and anyway, upon their birth, zookeepers told the New York Post not to get excited until they pass their six-month birthday. But I believe these guys will survive. (The species depends on it!) In just a few months they’ll be fuzzy little puffballs and YouTube will have a fresh new crop of baby panda vids. Happy one month birthdays, little guys! [YouTube; New York Post]

Terrible News: Baby Pandas Will Not Be Predicting The World Cup

You’re breaking my heart! Just weeks after a panda conservation center announced that pandas would predict the results of the 2014 World Cup a la Paul the octopus, today we learn the plan is no more. Three baby pandas reportedly would have predicted the winner based on which country’s flag was tied to food they gravitated towards. But now, the Chengdu Panda Preservation Center in Sichuan province says the publicity stunt has been “halted by the authorities.” Shit. This is the only thing that actually made me care about the World Cup. [South China Morning Post, BBC]

Baby Panda To Predict The World Cup Results

This existed on the Internet for 24 hours before I became aware of it, which means ALL OF YOU are in trouble: a baby panda will be predicting the winner of the 2014 World Cup. With the Cup taking place in Brazil in just one week, a panda conservation center in Chengdu, China, has “invited” a panda cub to use her psychic powers to guess who will emerge victorious. According to the Wall Street Journal, the cub will make a choice by going towards boxes of food marked with different national flags, or perhaps by climbing a tree marked with flags. The young cub will be the unwitting rival of the late Paul The “Psychic” Octopus, who predicted the outcome of many a soccer game before he suddenly died, leaving a publicity stunt-sized hole that needed to be filled. Obviously, by a baby panda. Good luck, little buddy! May your psychic powers not fail you during your moment in the limelight. [Wall Street Journal]

The Daily Squee: China Is Recruiting A Panda Nanny

Wanted: Full-Time Panda Babysitter

This is my dream job — no exaggeration, my dream job: a panda caretaker at the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in China. For one year, the panda nanny will aid the center’s professionals to care for bears young and old while serving as a “pambassador” for panda conservation. The job comes with a $32,000 salary, free room and board, and an SUV. All that’s required is that you’re over 22 (check), in good physical health (check), have a deep and abiding love for pandas (obviously), and a willingness to uproot one’s life and move to humid, subtropical Sichuan province (errr). I am going to quite seriously think about applying for this, because I would be such a good panda nanny. [Bring home a panda and I will hold your job for you. -- Amelia] [NBC News]

Growing Before Your Eyes

It’s a well-down fact that baby pandas are ugly as sin. Sorry, but it’s true. It takes a few months before panda cubs grow into the fuzzy black-and-white puffballs we (okay, I) know and love.  Zoo Atlanta are the proud keepers of a set of panda cubs, Mei Lun and Mei Huan. In this video, a zoologist explains the first 100 days of the baby pandas’ lives.  A lot like human babies, there’s a lot of sleeping, yawning, and trying to bite your brother. But, oh, the squeaking! The squeaking! [Thanks to reader Lauren for the link!] [YouTube]

Almost Eight Weeks Old!

You mean this baby panda video existed on the Internet for a full 24 hours before I saw it on HyperVocal? You mean no one else noticed that the almost-eight-week-old panda at the National Zoo was squealing adorably as it got some shots?  You mean no one thought to call, email, tweet, Facebook message, Instagram, Vine or skywrite write to me immediately?  Who are you people?!
