I just spotted these photos on TheCellar, and the things were too cuddly not to post about. When I initially looked at the photo, I assumed the guy was nuts-- obsessed with stuffed animals of the panda variety. But apparently, those fluffballs are 100% real! According to the site, the Sichuan Wolong Panda Protection and Breed Center has run into a bit of luck with their artificial insemination program as 16 baby pandas have been born since July. Even better? With 38 females impregnated, more pandas are set to hit the scene in February. Of course, I'm a little confused as to why the last little bear has found himself in a plastic container (I'm guessing it's to keep the young pandas fresh until the next litter arrives), but I'm not asking questions. More great photos here at TheCellar.
