Panda cubs make cute, if not somewhat klutzy debut in China

Can’t get enough pandas?

Well, iPanda.com has your fix. Operated jointly by China Network Television and Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, panda-cam is guaranteed to make you go, awwww, and grab, many, many hours of your time.

The research base brought together 23 panda cubs last week to commemorate the country’s national day on Oct. 1.

The baby pandas, which are just one- to four-months-old, basically just laze about. It’s obviously exhausting looking so cute.

Even when they take a tumble, they are ridiculously adorable.

Don’t worry, the little gaffer was okay.

More cuteness overload can be seen here.

The giant panda base reported double the number of newborn cubs compared to last year. It’s great news for the species, which due to dedicated conservation efforts is on the rebound.

The most recent census counted 1,864 giant pandas in the wild in China, according to the WWF. The International Union for Conservation of Nature red list of species now counts the pandas as “vulnerable,” no longer endangered.

But the black and white bears aren’t out of the woods, which is why the main breeding centre in Chengdu continues to work so hard to bring the species back from the brink.

And, their videos are incredibly addictive. Betcha can’t watch just one.
