OK, yes, pandas are absolutely adorable. And that is the only reason they have survived till now. Seriously: they express no intention to adapt to any circumstance, they gobble up millions of dollars every year, and they only eat bamboo, despite having a stomach adapted to meat. I like pandas. I realize that they need saving. But economically, it's really not worth a lot. Millions of dollars on captive breeding programs? What the money should really be going towards is conserving the Chinese forests, then not only will pandas be saved, but countless other species, maybe even some we don't even know exist yet! But I will give one thing about these furry creatures: they have bucked up the interest in animal conservation, but they are still absolutely amazing in how lazy, unvaried, and lethargic they are.
