Red pan-daaaaaah [trails off]

Look, People, red pandas must be stopped. Their tiny ears, petite schnozzles, sniffling whiskers—please—someone stop the 1.51-kilogrammed-madness.


The right-hand guy ducking behind the other guy is ESPECIALLY bad, Zoe H.

floofy floofy earses

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 09:49 PM

Any minute now, they will headbutt the person who is weighing them.

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 09:52 PM

Yup. Head is now officially exploded. Too cute!

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 09:52 PM

not only do I get the suspicious thrill of an early comment, this KILLS me.
teh eyes! fur! sleepiness! curled paw/claw!
not to mention the totally sexy digital number font/color combo (!!)

le sigh.
that was fantastic Meg.

That's two fluffy cutebodies weighing in at 1.51kg--so .75kg each? Itty bitties!

I think they want to come to my house and be my friend and steal my cookies.

p.s. I can't help but get a spooky techy cosmic unconscious feeling when I picture the several peeps who are physically and mentally united in a comment time-space-continuum.
note the 3 (!) posts at 09:52, and when I began my rant, there was only one comment up, so really four of us forming a fearsome cute-minded gathering of neural sparks.

Aww, the one in the back looks shy... ^_^

Check out these Red Pandas...too funny:


 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:23 PM

*faints from the cuteness*
aaaw! Now I can go to bed and have lurvly dreams <3

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:29 PM

Pandas for Peace. It's so simple - picture it: The Dream U.N...at each representative's seat, there will be a wee red panda. And suddenly all arguements, all misunderstandings, all cruel stupidities, all...RingRingRingRingRingRingRing...wait: it's the BANANAPANDA phone!!!

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:31 PM

Okay, not to turn you guys off or anything, but on the very left of the scale says (in Chinese characters)--skin removed (peeled). That sounds somewhat amusing if it's not for real, otherwise, it's just pretty disturbing. I think the scale happens to have an option that you can use to measure what certain things (such as pistachios) would weight after its skin has been peeled. They better not use that option for those red pandas.

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:37 PM

I saw a red panda chow down on a chipmunk once. It was. . .strange, to say the least. To have one cute animal eating another cute animal seemed to be breaking a million different rules.

I still love red pandas, though.

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:39 PM

cuteies *sigh*

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:40 PM

jeebus! i just made an audible gasp at those two. i love the snuggly peek-abo action from the shy one. aw man, too cute!

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:41 PM

My favorite! I just died and went to cuteness heaven. I love red pandas! :) :) :) *squee* *thud*

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:56 PM

the red panda video is sooo cute, like these 2 widdle guys! i need red panda roomies. i also need to smoogle the spot right where their head turns into ear!

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:58 PM

they don't eat red pandas, do they????

chet's momma
 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 10:59 PM

no, they dont eat pandas.

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 11:25 PM

Schmall pandas!!! My all-time-favourites, too cute to be true! I want to squish them so bad... Probably would bite me in the nose, but that's a small price to pay...

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 11:32 PM

I'm sorry, but red pandas are eleventy billion times cuter than regular ol' black and white pandas!!!

*snorfles the wee fuzzlets*

 |  Oct 11, 2006 at 11:37 PM

Those ears are just about mouf sized! Poor sleepy babies should come to my house and I will tuck them in snug in my bed, waking them only to kiss their prosh black noses.

As for the video- TOO MUCH CUTE!!! I had to shield my eyes. There should have been fair warning.

Anyone know what that show's about? Spend a night with exotic critters and win a million bucks?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 12:01 AM

I love red pandas!! Ow my poor heart strings!

The ones at Chester Zoo are brilliant. They just hang out in their massive tree looking down on everyone, obviously thinking 'Yeah, we know we're beautiful. Whatevs. Move on, puny humans.'

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 12:49 AM

Saw some at the Bronx Zoo in NYC several years ago. It was one long squeeeee until I could finally pull myself away from their enclosure.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 01:41 AM

Pam, "eleventy billion?" I LOVE that. Can I use it?

And, boy oh boy are those little red babies cute as can be. DE-LISH really! I wanna bite me one.

And since I pretty much suck at math, can someone tell me what 1.51 kilograms translates to in pounds?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 03:18 AM

Oh Cuteoverload... dearest, loverlierst, wonderfulerist CUTEOVERLOAD. I am obsessed with you - cause you are simply THE CLEANEST CRACK TOWN. And I am proudly ADDICTED.... must get more! MORE I say! BAROOOOOOOOOOOO! (twitch, twitch)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 03:32 AM

Oh look at those ears! Those wonderful, fluffy ears!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 04:15 AM

Oh my Lanta! Those red pandas could get me to do ANYTHING just to cuddle one of them! ...must...not...obey...PANDAS!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 04:23 AM

Liddle bebehs!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 04:24 AM

Awwwww, so cute!!

Just a couple things:
1) 1.5 kilograms = approx 3.3 lbs

2) the "skin peeling" function noted by some observant viewers corresponds to the "tare" function in English - you may remember from chemistry class that you have to weigh the container before you weigh its contents. It thankfully doesn't apply to red pandas.

3) Look at those fuzzy-wuzzy ears!

The Right Panda seems embarassed about his weight, perhaps? The Left Panda seems too sleepy to care.

Anyway, I lubs dem.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 05:16 AM

#2: Ohhh, don't tell me we've put on .2 of an ounce...

#1: What's with the "we"?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 05:30 AM

Mother of all that is holy - WHEN is it cute enough? Is there such a thing - cute enough?

Just when I think it's safe and Meg has found the cutest *whatever* on the planet, then we find these RED pandas. Not just any panda, but RED ones. And teeny tiny ones - the floofy fur people!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 05:36 AM

Hahahah, jaypo, and thanks little maio for taking care of the concern with the skin removed! Ack and hee!!!

I love Lefty's curled lip!!!

And, misscrisp, the number of times that peeps have been in time/space continuums together around here is scary (and awesome) ! Great minds and all! :)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 05:43 AM

Lovely white eyebrow action, too....

But....crunching on a chipmonk? *snort!!!*

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 05:48 AM

Enough! Enough with your propagapanda! Your benevolent red panda overlords have only your best [headbutt] interests at heart.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:04 AM

Oh, and as for red pandas eating chipmunks...circle of life, peeps. How did you think the higher orders of cute animals got SO cute? I mean, you are what you eat, right?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:08 AM


 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:10 AM

So true, and so sensible, Redzillapanda! :)

And, I spelled chipmunk wrong. Dammit, my best days are behind me.


And, if we are what we eat, I am now a Pumpkin Peanut M&M (tm).


 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:20 AM

Awwww! Shy red panda!! *melt*

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:20 AM

O M F'g G! Kill me! Kill me now! Trying not to squeee in office . . . must not squee . . . grrrgghhhh! **SPLODE!!**

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:33 AM

You know, I always wondered why peoples' heads sploded, but I think carolina has just given me a clue. Is it from trying to contain the socially awkward SQUEEEEE?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:36 AM

Lol....that's only one component, red!

Also, the sheer volume of Qte, streaming in through the eyeballs...building pressure....rising rising until...*plurp* the eyeballs blast out, the ears shoot out sideways and the whole melon splatters out into fragments, making der royal mess of the entire area.

Reassemble and repeat.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:41 AM

I vote these guys Number 1 for sheer densitude of ear floof!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:42 AM

if this was the zoon-iverse, Fossil would be calling these the red floofie bandits.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:44 AM


 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:54 AM

Awww! These guys are so FUZZY!!! :D

Lauri: chipmunk/chipmonk, heck my kids still say chickmunk. [they're 6 and 10]

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 06:54 AM

Well, big hooray for chickmunks and flutterbys, too! :D

Happy Birthday, Dbo!!! There are SO many October birfdays!
