Panda Doesn't Realise She's Had Twins! | BBC Earth

  • When having multiple cubs, pandas will usually only care for one baby and abandon the other, but switching them around might be the key for both twins' survival. Narrated by David Attenborough.

    Ingenious plan. I just hope it works out in the end. What would happen if momma discovers the truth? Will she allow the swapping to continue in order to nurture both her babies? Or will instinct kick in and make her ignore one of them completely? A fascinating experiment indeed!

    Pandas are such weird animals. They are bears yet they don’t eat meat. They’re supposed to and have the anatomy to eat meat, but they don’t want it. And on top of that they don’t reproduce quickly AT ALL, and sometimes they even pretend they’re pregnant to get better treatment. How can a species be so intelligent, frustrating, cute and stupid at the same time.
