To not care a jot about the panda?

(109 Posts)

Just been to visit them at the zoo. As I expected it's asleep. Sleeps 16 hours a day. The male one's ill so can't be on show. So we spend 10 minutes in a room with a video of it actually moving whilst it sleeps in a corner.

Maybe there's a reason it's only in season for 2 days a year? God's trying to tell us something surely? wink

One horned Rhinos on the other hand are the dog's bollocks. And if you hear one fart you're in for a treat. Fantastic!

am meh about the pandas I have not been to see them yet and the non event of a pregnancy got on my nerves such a waste of time I do think the Pandas are telling humans something give it up

Maybe it shouldnt be locked up in a zoo all its life. Pretty sure.id get depressed and bored and sleep most of the day away if I were locked up like that too.

they sleep so long because they cant digest the bamboo they do that in the wild too

Am not sure they'd exist still if it weren't for humans meddling? They're solitary animals.

Saw one of the San Diego ones years ago. All excited, dashed to the panda bit 1st thing in the morning. One panda was out, fast asleep, up a tree. Wow/Awww etc. Returned last thing before we went home, about 9 hours later. It was still in the tree. I swear it was a stuffed one from the gift shop, the real ones were backstage, listening to techno and doing Es.

Oh and no they shouldn't be in zoos at all. No fun for anyone or them tbh.

yes, but, they just sooo darn cute

I am not sure why they are still breeding and lending them to zoos tbh

I'm coming back as a panda.

You get to lie around and eat your body weight every day, and NOONE hates a panda. Everyone loves a panda.

Well except freaking sad

but could you stomach the sticks all you would have to eat is sticks grin I do like a baby panda though they are adorable

RhondaJean Tue 29-Oct-13 22:11:31

But pandas like sticks, it's their equivalent of eating milk tray all day every day.

I will be a happy panda.

Have you seen the sneezing panda baby?

TheCrackFoxFucker Tue 29-Oct-13 22:12:11

I live in Edinburgh and I can't be added going to see the pandas. Meh.

I have to say I'm a bit meh about the fuss surrounding pandas!

mrsjay Tue 29-Oct-13 22:13:37

bu they are bears they should be scoffing fish or deer or something not sticks grin

Yeah, but the koalas are cute.

Koala bear for me - better weather, sleep all day and getting a kick off all the eucalyptus leaves ...

Sneezing baby panda vair cute. <nods>

mrsjay Tue 29-Oct-13 22:14:36

NOW kolas grin bet they smell like vicks vapor rub

Hates??? Where did I say hate? I don't hate pandas for the love of God!!!

They're just meh that's all.

Little weeny monkey babies are so bloody cute though. I want one of those as long as it stays weeny and I had a room for it away from my dog who'd eat it. Not good.

{grin} sneezing panda baby it is very cute ok Pandas are cute sleepy and pointles but cute

MrsOakenshield Tue 29-Oct-13 22:16:20

wasn't it Chris Packham who said we should give up trying to save giant pandas? Can't remember what his reasoning was.

Zoos are vile places, why on earth do people go? To expect caged animals to entertain them?

RhondaJean Tue 29-Oct-13 22:16:36

Koalas are a bit too active.

And bugger that chasing a fish up a river crap.

Now, sticks, they stay put so they do, and you can just roll around and hug them and eat and nap when you feel like it.

Tell me that doesn't sound like bliss!

mrsjay Tue 29-Oct-13 22:16:42

oh no monkey pets they go for you they are really wild and not good pets
