This Adorable Red Panda Cub Would Like More Belly Tickles, Please
The Symbio Wildlife Park, a zoo and animal sanctuary located in Helensburgh, Australia, welcomed three new red panda cubs — Raja, Phingu, and Mohan — late last year and they are cute AF.
Now that you've had the opportunity to pick your jaw up off the floor, you should know that the siblings are hitting the 6-month mark.
As such, the adorable critters are starting to show a playful side to their personalities, which employees at the zoo say "is abundant with super cute antics and love" (BE STILL MY HEART).
Mohan, in particular, has bonded like an ion with his handler, Beth, who spoils him daily with a steady diet of neck scratchies, nose boops, and belly tickles.
See the example below, cut into convenient GIF form for your viewing pleasure.
According to a new video that "has created a frenzy of cuteness across the internet", staff first observed Mohan's behavior last week — and now they say the affectionate cub can't go long without a dose of belly rubs.
"Each day at feeding time when their favourite human rings the dinner bell, they will all come a running, with Mohan proving he loves affection just as much as his belly being full. Zoo keepers first realised Mohan loves a good belly tickle early last week, and now he just can't seem to get enough of them."
And like a cat or dog that wants their pets, Mohan isn't afraid to prompt his humans for mohr attention when he wants it, which is basically 24-7-365.
Watch the adorableness below, but only if you don't have anything to do, but it will kill any hopes for future productivity dead.
Can you even? CAN YOU REALLY?
