Start your Monday off right, AKA with this video of Mohan the red panda being adorable and getting belly tickles. This clip comes from the Symbio Wildlife Park, where Mohan is one of their three Red Panda Cubs. He and his siblings Raja and Phingu were born on Christmas Eve. His personality, the park writes, “is abundant with super cute antics and love.”
Here, he’s with his keeper Beth Sticker who quite possibly (paw-sibly?) has the best job in the world. However, this red panda is more than just a cuddly and affectionate delight. “Mohan is not only off the scale adorable, but actually plays an integral part in the long term survival of the species. He along with his siblings play an important role in the over-arching captive management breeding program that Symbio is part of, and he will one day too have a family of his own.
With there believed to be less than 2,500 Red Pandas left in the wild, namely due to habitat loss and poaching, you have to say their future is definitely in some mighty cute hands, or paws.”
Un-bear-ably adorable, no?
