It was incredible.
Most of you have seen this picture already but here it is again.
For your information - I'm presuming no one else will hold a panda in their lifetime - they are pretty heavy. This little guy was about 60 pounds. Their fur is coarse. He sat still because they put honey on his paw that he was sucking like a baby sucking their thumb. He is about 1 year old and I am really happy in this picture.
