Zoos to See Pandas

Zoos to See Pandas

Let’s face it, is there an animal that people love to see more than giant pandas?

They are cute, cuddly, roll-y poll-y, and hilariously stubborn. We’re so obsessed with seeing them at our zoo’s that many of them have created live streaming “Pandacam’s” just so we can watch them 24 hours a day.

Of course, no one is complaining. After all, it’s virtually impossible to watch a young panda cub playing around and not have a big smile on your face after a few minutes.

Since giant pandas are an endangered species, their care is very closely watched by the US Fish and Wildlife Service while they are on loan from China. That means only a handful of the top notch zoos in the country actually get to house and grow giant pandas for people to visit.

So, you’re probably in the mood to spend a little while with some pandas now, right?

We don’t blame you. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the only zoos across the country where you can actually see giant pandas in the habitat as you would in the wild.

But get yourself ready for a cute attack, don’t say we didn’t warn you!
