Papier-mâché?! What is papier-mâché?!

They need that many sexual harrassment mascots??

THAT will haunt my dreams for years to come?  Really?  Holy crap, subby, did you pee yourself during "Frozen"?

That's much closer to "awwww" than haunting my dreams wussmitter.

/looks like more than 1600 though, nice camera angle

Subby, Let me guess, are you scared of spiders too?

If he's using Thai methods these pandas are made of mostly bamboo, like the real ones.

Of course pandas are head toward extinction. They're bears, with the digestive system of omnivores. They then fail to eat omnivorously.

It's okay subby, we don't hate you for your fear of paper animals. But we are required by Fark bylaws to mock you mercilessly.

OK, so just a thought...

Maybe it would have been better for the real pandas to not cut down the food they like to make fake pandas..

mmkay?

They are not bears, they are more closely related to racoons. also they are carnivores, not ominvores.

Pandas are born with sterile intestines, and require bacteria obtained from their mother's feces to digest vegetation.[33][34] However, the giant panda still has the digestive system of a carnivore, as well as carnivore-specific genes

Which is why they need to eat bamboo almost CONSTANTLY just to stay alive. What little nutrition they get from it must come at a constant basis.

Omnivores also consume both animal and non-animal food, and apart from the more general definition, there is no clearly defined ratio of plant to animal material that would distinguish a facultative carnivore from an omnivore. (from the carnivore wiki)

Just to remind you, pandas are omnivores.

An omnivore that, on it's own, can't process vegetation because it's digestive system is that of a carnivore.

Still makes it an omnivore.  Again, Carnivora is not the same as a carnivore.

I don't know. I seem to remember one Fark fight regarding what woks should be made of...

Okay, for the record, here's what Animal Diversity Web has to say about Ailuropoda melanoleuca, aka the Giant Panda, regarding their food habits.

Giant pandas have an extremely strict energy budget. They travel little and are usually foraging when they do move. Giant pandas can spend 10-12 hours a day feeding. Bamboo, the main source of pandas' diet (over 99%) is a very poor nutritional source but present all year round. Only about 17% of the nutrients found in the leaves and stalks are extracted. These bears make a trade-off to have a plentiful, easily obtained food source but with low nutritional value. Giant pandas are well-known for their upright feeding position which leaves their forelegs free to handle the bamboo stalks. This species has several special characteristics related to eating bamboo. The extra digit on the panda's hand helps the panda in tearing the bamboo. This adaptation also allows increased dexterity while handling bamboo. The stomach walls are extremely muscular to help digest the woody diet; and the gut is covered with a thick layer of mucus to protect against splinters (Ward and Kynaston, 1995; Malius, 2001; Massicot, 2001).
Foods eaten include: bamboo stems and shoots, fruits of plant matter like kiwi, small mammals, fish and insects.
Primary Diet: herbivore (folivore)
Animal Foods: mammals; fish; insects
Plant Foods: leaves; fruit


Nothing about baby pandas eating parental feces, but I'm half afraid to Google that...

I know koala bears do that to pick the bacteria they need to help digest eucalyptus leaves. Never heard that about pandas, but it would makes sense.
