“Everything’s a battle when you’re a baby panda.” This is the conclusion I’ve come to in my exhaustive and highly scientific review of basically every baby panda video on the internet. A collection of some of my favorite fights follows. Spoiler: the pandas mostly lose.
1 - Baby Panda vs. Rocking Horse
2 - Baby Panda vs. Bedtime, Part 1
This fuzzy insomniac is roaming the halls, certain there’s a party happening somewhere. Mom comes in at the end and forces a draw.
3 - Baby Panda vs. Bedtime, Part 2
Okay, now Mom just wants to sleep.
4 - Baby Panda vs. Crib
I am just endlessly impressed by this one’s determination. NO BARS WILL HOLD HER BACK.
5 - Baby Pandas vs Slide
Gravity is rough, guys. No one will deny that. But, like, maybe try going down feet first next time?
6 - Baby Pandas vs. Each Other, Part 1
The two on the left are duking it out in a King of the Hill-style battle for their caretaker’s lap. Leftmost one seems to be the clear winner here. (Also, hands up everyone who wants to be that zookeeper right now.)
7 - Baby Pandas vs. Each Other, Part 2
Things get brutal fast when there aren’t enough milk bottles to go around at snack time.
8 - Baby Pandas vs. Each Other Part 3
Okay, these two are actually getting some moves! Keep training, little bears. One day you may both be champions.
9 - Baby Panda vs. Soccer Ball
This panda’s main combat strategy seems to be “Idk, I will try to fall on it some more?”
10 - Baby Pandas vs. Zookeeper vs. Piles of Leaves
A recent viral hit, this video was an instant classic in the baby panda genre. Although I went in a Baby Panda fan, I came out kinda rooting for Team Zookeeper. She is clearly the underdog here. (Poor thing deserves a raise.)
11 - Baby Pandas vs. EVERYTHING
These panda babies… I don’t even know. Let’s just say, If something can be run into, fallen off of, tripped over, or generally failed at, these little bears will manage it somehow. And I suppose there’s a kind of success in that. But still, maybe hold off on enrolling them in kung fu just yet?
