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?!

Here’s A First Peek At The D.C. Zoo’s New Baby Panda!

Baby Panda! Baby Panda! Baby Panda!

Not one of my friends alerted me to this (days-old) video of the National Zoo’s new baby panda with her mom, Mei Xiang. I had to find it myself on my daily “new baby panda video” rounds. Thanks for nothing, everyone. None of you are invited on my own personal panda pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. when he/she/it reaches peak puffball. None, I say.  [DCist]

Awwww!

I don’t know what kind of week you’ve had, but I do know that you’ll feel a million times better than you do at right this moment if you watch a baby panda at the Taipei Zoo suck its thumb. Mommy panda Yuan Yuan gave birth to the little tyke, who doesn’t have a name yet, back in July. The zoo’s YouTube page is keeping us up-to-date with squee-dorable panda moments. And it’s only getting fuzzier from here on out! [Laughing Squid]

Squee!

You don’t think there would be a baby panda video that I would keep to myself, do you? Wash your mouth out with bamboo! This here is a mama panda wrestling with her baby panda cub — quite adorably, if I do say so myself. At least I think they are playing. That little guy is really getting tossed around.

Moooo-om! Get Up And Play!

This week, the chattering classes have been embroiled in a debate about New York magazine’s cover story “The Retro Wife,” which explored feminists who choose to be stay-at-home-moms. I weighed in, as did Jezebel with their subtle headline “‘The Feminist Housewife’ Is Such Bullshit.’” It’s controversial!  But, really, who cares what a couple of bloggers think? We’re just people who don’t know any more than anybody else. That’s why I take all my complicated social issues to one place. That’s right, pandas. And I think we can all agree that this stay-at-home, er, lay-at-home mommy panda wishes she had never left the workforce. [YouTube]

My big sister Allison egregiously aids and abets my panda obsession. She is the one responsible for almost all my panda crap, most of which sits on the bookshelf above my desk at work: panda mug, panda PEZ dispenser, panda eraser, twin panda Christmas ornaments, a panda figurine, and a panda T-shirt. Now, I have a new panda knickknack I covet: a micro crochet mohair panda. You read that right! This made-to-order panda cutie measures in at 0.8 inches, making him smaller than the pad of your finger. What the shit do I need a micro crochet mohair panda for? Especially one retailing for a cool $78? Who the fuck cares! Allison, my birthday is coming up. [Etsy]

Growing Bigger Every Day

Last time we checked in with Xiao Liwu, the baby panda at the San Diego Zoo, he was more fluffy and roly-poly.  These days, the 26-week-old panda cub is looking more like an actual bear than a puffball, but he’s still as wiggly as can be. All together now: Squeeeeeee!

How do I get this job?!?!  There appears to be a whole field of neuroscience focused on studying why certain animals are cute (aka Cute Studies) and, as NPR helpfully recapped for my pleasure, one of the animals they have explored is baby pandas.

Strap on your squee-belt, because it’s about the get adorable up in here. Keep reading »

Oh, Baby!

Over the summer, a baby panda named Xiao Liwu was born at the San Diego Zoo, inspiring delight in Jessica Wakeman’s cubicle, and a few months later we watched him get his first adorable baby panda belly rub. Now, here’s Xiao Liwu getting his 22-week checkup over New Year’s. And also learning the hard way that tires have holes in the inside that you can fall through!

He’ll soon be on display to the public, which means it’s time for a Frisky reader in San Diego to put me up on the couch/bail me out of jail when I get arrested for trespassing. Any takers? Smokers and Tea Party Republicans need not apply. [Neatorama]
