It’s not difficult to understand why pandas are an endangered species. They’re lazy, slow-moving, reluctant to breed and extremely picky about food. All they do is eat and they only eat bamboo leaves. Well, at least they don’t insist on the finest D24 durians. Anyway, pandas may not survive very well in the wild, but this video I took at the panda research centre in Chengdu shows that pandas do possess some survival skills. They respond to the keeper’s call. Some commentary there by visitors from Guangdong.
