Smarter than the Average Panda?

yun-zi-01 Yes, I know: (1) Large head doesn’t make one smarter, but it was just so I could use the post title. (Maybe one or two of you see where it comes from…) (2) The final resort of a busy blogger: – cute animal pictures. Well, I already regularly share pictures with you concerning what I had for dinner, so no change there.

This is Yun Zi, (“Son of Cloud” I hear) who arrived in the public eye (at five months old) yesterday at San Diego Zoo*. Evidently he is from the same designers who brought you other balls of cuteness such as Tai Shan, Knut the Polar Bear (anyone remember Knut?), the cat riding the roomba, and of course, T-duality.

    Aw, such cuteness is deja vu all over again!

    (A tangent from the quote source, with my own twist.)

    _That_ is an excellent tangent.

    You’re welcome to take the fork. You know, the one in the road.

    Cute indeed!

    Reminds me tho of when my science journalist sister did an internship at the National Zoo and had to deal with “panda crazies,” people who’d go every day all day and look at the pandas (the cub in particular) and say stuff to visitors about them that wasn’t true. I didn’t believe her until I visited the Zoo last month and while watching the pandas had a guy with a giant camera tell me how he was sleeping because he’d been really active at 6am that morning and wore himself out, been sleeping since 815 or so…
