darth_badger: Panda fun fact ... A panda can poop on average 50 times a day.


Big deal, so can I after lunch at Panda Express.

Man . . . one of those hides would look great as my bedspread.

How's the meat taste? Is is greasy like brown bear or does it taste like soy sauce? Maybe sweet & sour?

Hung Chow . . . Chinese for constipated.

Best thing about pandas:  light AND dark meat.

Lady Indica: They also approve all the names, which is why all pandas have Chinese names.


Usually two of them.

\although it's the same name

The funny part is the government of China claims to OWN all the Chinese people in the world as well. Wonder what the rental costs on workers compared to PR animals is ?
I KNOW the benefits to the Pandas are better than the workers retirement package.

Not actually bears... they are marsupial.. so the taste would presu,ably be closer to Opposum.
They are alsovegetarian, so probably not too bad.

Bslim: Explain to me again what Pandas are supposed to do.


Eat, shoot, and leave.

kim jong-un: highendmighty: fusillade762: I say until China starts taking our copyright laws seriously we just make loads of cheap panda knockoffs.

1) Sample blood from borrowed pandas
2) Clone pandas

Although a clause to borrow the pandas may state that cloning is not an option.
Anyone work at a zoo that has borrowed pandas?  Why aren't we cloning them?

You need a panda to host the cloned embryos.


Actually you could implant the clone into a less endangered ursine.

Closest relative, oddly, is the Andean spectacled bear which is classified as "vulnerable".  I don't get why there isn't a cloning program (unless there is one and I'm just not aware of it).  It would be a shame for these magnificent animals to become extinct.

WTF? Who told you that? They're not marsupials - they're ursine.

You're thinking Koalas, right?

They are alsovegetarian, so probably not too bad.

Well, giant pandas follow a vegetarian diet. But, they're carnivores. And they don't like sex much.

They're an evolutionary dead-end, yet eco-mentalists champion their cause, citing them as an example of a species that must be saved... by renting living examples from China, apparently.

On loan?  No.  More like leased at $1000000 per year.  Oh yeah, they only eat bamboo which has to be flown in from China too.


And God help you if a panda should die while in your care.

heh... I've been going under the assumption they were marsupials for forever...

I stand corrected..

evolutionary dead end and all, I knew that much.. A species that is trying actively to destroy itself short of out right suicide.

Well, they've got a point...we shouldn't let any species go extinct until we learn how to bring it back again, if necessary.  Could have useful proteins, etc, that we haven't discovered yet, or figured out how to synthesize.

Case in point:  the horseshoe crab was always considered pretty useless...until they discovered limulin.
Now the local fishery is a profitable, productive industry, employing people and making a useful product.

So, stop being short-sighted.

Lady Indica: I knew it because of the panda exhibit in California, when they first came to the zoo it was part of the story about them. And China can enforce it by not allowing any of their pandas out unless that policy is agreed to. They take panda conservation seriously so I haven't seen any org really biatch about it. They also approve all the names, which is why all pandas have Chinese names.


"They take panda conservation seriously."

Translation: They care fark-all about pandas but know where their bread is buttered.

Hey, I wrote this! It's from Now I Know, my free daily email newsletter of fun facts of the day (except that some of them aren't so fun, because some awesome facts are scary or whatever).

http://nowiknow.com/ if you want to give it a try, there's just under 100,000 others subscribed right now.

So concerned about Pandas.  So oblivious to the ecosystem, human rights and keeping lead out of kid's toys.


WE MAINTAIN PLIOLITIES!  PANDA NUMBAH ONE PLIOLITY!  Not care about humans, we just make more!

Fun fact: Giant Pandas' closest relative is the 1967 Plymouth Satellite Station Wagon.

Also, they are more closely related to granite than to Red Pandas.
