RT’s documentary on efforts in China to save the Giant Panda.
“We must follow the laws of nature…”
–employee at the Panda Breeding and Research Center, Chengdu, China
One of the things that fascinated me most about this is that pandas apparently are the only species ever to have evolved from a carnivore into a vegetarian. According to an article here, “Pandas are vegetarians because they lost the meat-eating gene.” You can kind of see why the Chinese are so keen on saving the species from extinction. A thoroughly unique animal!
