    Want to keep exploring uniquely kooky corners of the natural world? We’ve got a book rec for you: Lucy Cooke’s “The Truth About Animals.” The very book this video was adapted from! Learn more about some remarkable animals— and the crafty humans who study them— by checking out her book here:

    One of the major reasons they keep breeding them in captivity is because of what happens after the birth of the cubs. Many first time moms are not sure what to do because when cubs poop it hardens essentially sealing the area close. And usually in captivity, the caretakers help with that so as to not cause infections and obstructions in the bowels. Also, in the wild, if a cub is born weak then it is usually abandoned by the mom panda.

    So essentially, pandas don’t fit very well with captive reproduction, but instead of learning why they don’t do well, we blame them for being bad and not trying hard enough
    Congratulation to us, we’re basically the US educational system

    I don't want to be rude but what for did you depict russian/USSR symbols? in such way you are promoting them though under this symbol millions of Ukrainians were tortured and killed. (red star on a hat)

    So what your saying is we need to work on conservation of their habitats more then breeding or simply letting them have interactions with more pandas I know a zoo (more of a conservation area) in ohio has those horses that the Chinese Emperor live (according to the story I heard) so when the people rebelled they pretty much almost wiped out their population and they were thought to be Extinct until some were found in the wilds near Germany now they are doing very well and they just let them do their own thing while doing drive through (in busses provided by the place) tours it was really cool I think it was called The Wilds

    Author: "We should be focusing on keeping their habitat intact."
    The Government where Panda Live: "You want us to give a piece of our land just so they could breed naturally and not becoming attraction where they can give us more money? Absolutely, NO!"

    Sorry. It's somewhat just a joke…
