So let's be honest, we have all fallen in love with Giant Pandas at one point in our lives, I personally am still doting over the baby pictures of Bei Bei who was born in 2015. When I was thinking about writing another animal facts article, I asked one of my friends for ideas and she suggest pandas which I proceeded to tell her was cliche as far as cute animals go, but she insisted. The truth is there are actually a lot of things I didn't know about the big, cuddly-looking bears that are the face of the Worldwide Wildlife Fund. I picked out the facts I found most interesting and some adorable pictures for everyone to enjoy as they get ready for finals. So enjoy!

1. A newborn panda cub is about the size of a stick of butter according the WWF, making it roughly 1/900 of the size of its mother.


2. Giant Pandas are actually really good at climbing trees.











3. Giant Pandas can be more than four feet tall.


4. They must eat 26 to 84 pounds of bamboo a day!

5. There are less than 2,000 Giant Pandas left in the wild.

6. You can only find wild Giant Pandas in China.

7. If a panda has twins, the mother will abandon one of them because she cannot care for both.







8. Pandas live up to 20 years in the wild.


9. Pandas live alone.


I hope these facts make you respect these adorable bears for more than just their pretty faces.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
