Ridiculously Cute

A worker cares for a newborn giant panda—one of a set of twins born to 12-year-old Guo Guo, which was moved after the May 12 earthquake.

It was the first panda birth after the 7.9 magnitude quake struck near China's main breeding center at Wolong National Nature Reserve, in hilly western Sichuan Province. Most of the pandas have been moved, some to the reserve at Ya'an, also in Sichuan.

Oh! Teddible, just teddible!

Actually I think they're cuter when they're a bit older than this and are showing the characteristic coloring. For my money, however, red pandas are far cuter than the giant pandas.

Yeah, red pandas are absurdly cute. Actually, one of the nice things about moving to Canada was that they actually have adorable and friendly racoons here, as opposed to the rabid ones we had in Virginia.
