Pandas are truly some of the most adorable animals on the planet. They’re basically just big balls of fluff and love that like cuddling more than anything else in the world.

A video of a baby panda is more proof of just how cute these animals are.

This little panda lives in Toronto Zoo. His parents are named Er Shun and Da Mao, and his name is Canadian Hope. He also has a sibling named Canadian Joy.

As expected, the baby pandas managed to draw the attention of many zoo visitors, as well as the Canadian Prime Minister, who cuddled with them during the private party for their first birthday.

And this particular video the sweet little panda amassed more than 5.5 million views and over 66k likes for being just so adorable.

The video showed the male cub, “Canadian Hope”, being bottle-fed by a caretaker, and it melted hearts as soon as it was uploaded.

At the beginning, the man goes into the panda enclosure holding a bottle of mild. The panda immediately understands that he’s there to feed him and he’s grabbing his legs, in a way asking for milk.

The man needs to use both of his hands to handle the animal- let’s not forget that pandas might be as light as 100gr when they’re born, but they soon get larger. After all, they’re bear species. So, the caretaker has to put the bottle in his pocket and take the panda in his arms.

The man takes the panda to a rock nearby, he sits there, with the panda still in his arms as if it were a giant baby, and he starts feeding it using the bottle.

The panda acts like a human baby that craves milk, and takes the bottle in his hands, ready to devour his meal!

While the cub is eating, the man is examining his toes and nails. All the while, he seems to be talking to the animal, and, although we have no idea what he might be telling him, it feels like he’s talking to him as if it were his baby.

Soon, the panda drinks up the milk and it’s time for the best part: the patting on the back until he burps. Yes, you read that correctly.

Just like you would do with your human baby!

The caretaker is a hundred percent devoted to his task. He pats the panda on the back for quite some time until he burps. Visitors, who have been watching this whole time excitedly, are now enjoying this special moment between the two.

Youtube users commented on how good the man is at his job and that he’s ready to become a father to his own kids.

“This young man is certainly ready for Fatherhood for his own children,” someone wrote, while another Youtube user commented: “Happiest job on the earth is being a panda nanny.. they are so adorable…”
