Playtime for Pandas

Today I watched the Panda keepers and interns play and exercise the Panda cubs. 

Now for a slide action sequence. I hope you can handle it.

I better get a freaking treat for that.

This keeper is getting the Panda cub to stand on his hind legs to stengthen them. Or maybe I am wrong about all this ethical stuff and he is being trained to perform in a circus!

This Panda decided to come down from the stump to get his milk.

Unfortunately, one Panda got a shot during playtime. They make little crying yelps when stuff like this happens to them (or when another cub starts gnawing on them).

  1. That shot of the panda divebombing down the slide is awesome. They never show you that in nature documentaries!
