In a panda conservatory in China, a worker was tasked to arrange bamboo stalks inside the pandas’ pens for their food. When he was inside one particular enclosure, his work started to be slowed down by a single panda cub. As the man was dragging a couple of stalks, the panda cub slowly approached him and clung onto his feet. The man could be seen limping forward with the baby panda enjoying a free ride on his leg.

The panda persistently follows the nanny around no matter how he shakes him off.

After the man placed the first bunch of stalks, he would pick up the panda cub and leave him on top of an elevated platform. However, the cub could easily climb down and would come running back toward the nanny.

The persistent panda refuses to let go especially when his paws were tightly clutched around the nanny’s leg. The man tries to place the annoying panda on a higher ground yet the cub was still fast enough to climb down and catch up with him. Their interaction was plainly hilarious and it shows the trusting relationship between them.

This clip went bonkers on the internet and got the people to adore pandas even more.

iPanda uploaded the clip on their YouTube channel, garnering more than 20 million views on the platform. Plenty of people showed admiration for the hardworking nanny in the video as they claimed that they might not be able to resist the panda cub’s overwhelming cuteness. Indeed, it is hard to work with such an adorable creature clinging to your leg all the time. I might just ditch the work and cuddle with the panda bear all they long.

Giant pandas were once almost in danger of extinction but China stepped up to battle the endangered bear species by building several conservatories and breeding sanctuaries. The bears were given a beautiful environment to live in, and they were given the necessities to keep them safe and healthy.

The large-scale project enabled the panda bear’s endangered status to drop, changing it to ‘vulnerable.’ Until now, giant panda’s population kept on growing, and they’re greatly protected by the people in China. Moreover, iPanda shares the panda’s lives on the internet through livestreams from several panda reservation sites, as well as sharing updated news and informative documentaries regarding the species.

The panda cub’s relentless pursuit of attention.

If we think about it, the reason may be obvious on why the panda kept on chasing the man around. As you can see in the clip, its parents were not around the pen; either the cub lost them at a young age, or the conservatory separated them for a reason.

Therefore, we could assume that the cub just needed some attention, and he could trust the nanny well enough to provide it for him. Regardless of what was the story behind this cub, we could conclude that no matter how the man avoids the panda’s clinginess, it still proves to be difficult for him to shake off the cub’s love.
