The AP is reporting that the National Zoo’s Panda club had a photo shoot today: Panda cub gets its close-up.

More than 100 reporters and camera crews from around the world got their first look at the fuzzy creature as they filed past his indoor enclosure in five different shifts. And the 4 1/2-month-old cub did not disappoint.

He chased his zookeeper around, trying to nibble at the hems of her jeans. He pulled himself over the ledge of the habitat’s rocky centerpiece. He tumbled onto his back, and he gummed at the bamboo stalks that will someday form his diet.

CNN even has a video of the tyke.

Bad enough they’ve got environmental pressures driving them towards extinction, but to take up smoking? ;)

Steve!!! Stop that right now!! It’ll stunt your growth.

Now theres a cure for stress, a bomber joint - If it’s ganja will he be accepted as a Rastafarian?

No one who’s read the panda cub’s blog would be surprised at him smoking. It’s all part of his badass lifestyle. Pulp fiction style: http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/[…]20Bandit.jpg

That’s not a cigarette, it’s a very large noodle.

Hey, there’s this fuzzy-looking kid out in the parking lot stealing my hubcaps!

So, this is what came of when Prof. Steve Steve had unprotected sex.

Wilkins.. you need to have a chat with the old boy and now teach him about child support.

he is such a cootie

Aha! This picture explains the evolution of the panda’s thumb. Nothing to do with grasping tasty bamboo; everything to do with constructing a bear-sized doobie and operating a Zippo to spark it up. Try that without opposable digits. At least the koala bypassed the entire business by finding a primary foodstock that gets it righteously stoned from the very first mouthful.
