In Case You Needed An Excuse to Look at Cute Pandas

Mei Xiang And Other Pandas

On August 22, Mei Xiang the panda gave birth to two adorable panda cubs. In the animal world, the birth of these pandas is especially exciting because pandas have become an endangered species, so to have not one but two more pandas is something to celebrate.

Workers at the Smithsonian National Zoo found out Mei Xiang was pregnant only about a week before the births. After this, they kept a close eye on her. She is used to the spotlight, though, from living in the Smithsonian National Zoo and being the star of a video of her being scared by her sneezing cub that is popular on YouTube (shown below).

To mark the celebration of the two new panda cubs, here are some more cute pandas.

Cute three-second gifs of pandas have proven yet again to make my day, which is just another reason why we need to help this cute endangered species that Mei Xiang is a member of. With around 1,864 of these guys left in the wild, please consider donating to WWF to help save them. For information on how to help pandas or to donate, click here.
