Giant Pandas Everywhere

I have a new favorite animal, the Panda.

When planning our China trip, Kristy and I decided that seeing a Panda was a must. So we went to the largest Giant Panda Base in the world: The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

Climbing Panada Time

Now Chengdu was never planned to be a highlight of our China Trip, we thought the usual: The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, would take those honors. But those pandas, I have never seen a more adorable creature in my life! Yes, cuter than cats!

Lucky me, I even got the opportunity to hold a baby panda! Now opportunity might have been a strech, it was more like I paid 1000 CNY (approx~$150 USD) to hold it for 20 seconds. Was it a complete rip off? Yes. But, the money is technically a donation towards the panda base so I didn’t feel to bad about it. And, the baby panda’s furr felt like a soft fluffy pillow.

    I can’t believe I haven’t read this blog post before! So many freaking adorable pictures! Pandas are such precious animals and it’s so sad that there aren’t that many left :( Fortunately places like The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding help :)

    Wow… those pandas really look so cute and huggable! The first one seen eating a bamboo shoot sure looks like he is enjoying his meal!
