This hairy little thing is a baby Panda!

Do you know, the closest candidate for exact Panda's name is the Nepali word ponya, possibly referring to the adapted wrist bone. The Western world originally applied this name to the Red Panda. Until 1901, when it was erroneously stated that it was related to the Red Panda, the Giant Panda was known as "mottled bear" (Ailuropus melanoleucus) or "particolored bear.

p/s : aren't they cute little panda...do not harm them, they're endangered species in every way..
