As the Postcrosser who sent this from China said, "Everybody loves a panda".
From the Wiki, a couple things I didn't know about pandas:
1. Their name is "Giant Panda", not "just plain panda".
2. There is a "Red Panda", which looks more like a cat.
3. The giant panda has the second longest tail in the bear family.
4. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. was the first Westerner to shoot a giant panda, on an expedition in the 1920s funded by the Field Museum of Natural History.
5. The first giant panda in a US zoo was brought to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago in 1936.
Now you know!
