Your morning adorable: Walk like a man, giant panda
So how do you strength-train a panda?
Apparently, you teach him to walk on his hind legs, a mode of locomotion he probably wouldn't try on his own. The method may seem strange, but we're not inclined to scoff -- after all, giant pandas are so endangered that it's believed there are fewer than 2,000 of them left in the wild, so any effort to help the species survive seems worthwhile (even if it does look a little odd).
After the jump, check out more photos of this fellow, an 18-month-old male, getting the hang of walking upright!
