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.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
