Panda-monium


Panda, Ailuropoda melanoleuca, eating bamboo. It gives new meaning to toothpicks doesn't it? Apparently, pandas have to eat around 40-80 lbs of bamboo a day, partly because of bamboo's low nutritional value.

There are the cutest things! Apparently, one got out the other day...just wandered out of the compound and, when confronted by the zookeeper, who was desperately trying to get the panda to go back in, nipped the zookeeper. The day I shot this, both pandas were up and munching heartily on bamboo, which is pretty amazing in itself!
