You’re gonna have to wait until I recover before I can produce anything intellectually substantive!  In the meantime, the San Diego Zoo continues to post videos of its panda cub undergoing medical investigation.

  1. We would show you the 8th panda cub exam except he ate the veterinarian and the camera person.

    We can report that his appetite is very healthy.

    1. yes, and no, but that ruins the joke.

      From Wikipedia:

      Despite its taxonomic classification as a carnivore, the Giant Panda has a diet that is primarily herbivorous, which consists almost exclusively of bamboo. However, the Giant Panda still has the digestive system of a carnivore and does not have the ability to digest cellulose efficiently, and thus derives little energy and little protein from consumption of bamboo…

  2. Recover? You haven’t brought back another botfly have you? 😛

    I’ll be looking forward to more stories about Guatemala; I didn’t even realize the Maya inhabited that region – I’ve always wanted to go for the volcanoes.

  3. This is way cuter than anything PZ has done lately. Throw in a couple of kittehs and you’ve got yourself a viral hit. Welcome back.
