New Website Too Cute To Exist

ZooBorns is a new site dedicated to scarfing up everyone else’s internet traffic by posting nothing but cute baby animals, like these Red Panda Cubs recently born in the Edmonton Valley Zoo:

Zooborn is produced by Chris and Andrew, who are very dedicated animal-symps. Andrew runs the blog Zooillogix.

ZooBorns brings you the newest and cutest exotic animal babies from zoos and aquariums around the world. As you can see, the site itself is a newborn, but we’re here to stay, so check back frequently for new critters!

The Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens) lives in central/southern Asia (China, India, s.e. Asia, and Bhutan). It is not a panda, but rather, a member of the group that includes the weasels, skunks, and raccoons. For a long time people thought they were a kind of panda, and the history of that controversy is a mildly interesting story that I won’t go into here. One of the complicating facotrs is that Red Pandas eat bamboo, as to Giant Pandas.

But the strangest thing about the Red Panda is that it is the only mammal that starts out cute and grows up to be even cuter!!! This is an adult Red Panda (photograph from Wikipedia, Creative Commons Copyright):

    Hey, I think raccoons are pretty cute(and funny), even grown up! And raccoons and red pandas are related, you know!
