Red Panda Loses Mind Over Pumpkin

from Wildlife Promise

I don’t have much to say about this video other than it’s making the rounds on the internet, it was shot at the Maruyama Zoo in Sapporo, Japan, and it’s incredibly cute.

OK, I do have one thing to say: Every red panda I’ve ever seen at the zoo has been either sleeping in a tree or moving around very slowly. Why haven’t I gotten to see this? Are the other red pandas lazy, or is this one energetic? Or do pumpkins have special power over red pandas that we need to more regularly incorporate at zoos?
