Do you know the giant panda? With a Atmospheres Big teddy bears eyes Circled in black, it’s enough to melt us. But it is also a symbol Cash Threatened. The proof is even the motto of the foundation WWF.

We lacked sweetness for this adorable bear that mythology presents as an animal with a big heart. So big heart that it is said that this is the way Black spots It appeared on clean white fur at the beginning of Huge panda. Much like traces of ash left by their claws wiping away tears When a person dies. Cover their ears so that they cannot hear them crying. And we hugged each other for comfort.

To see him, with his light air, sitting there endlessly chewing a Bamboo However, indigestible, only one desire comes to us: a big hug for him. But make no mistake about it. The animal also has its small flaws. Here, for example, a little lazy. Including when it comes to seducing his beauty.

Worse still – or maybe not, depending on each person’s values ​​- the giant panda seems to have developed an odd attraction … come on! Let’s not be afraid of words: other people’s poo.

And a little hint, they usually exhibit this behavior when temperatures in the mountains they live in drop below 15 degrees Celsius … so, do you have any idea why they are doing this? But yeah, you’re heating up … literally!

By taking a closer look at horse dung (well, I can rest assured, they didn’t roll in it), researchers found two interesting substances: beta-caryophylline and carophylline oxide. These have super powerful: toggle, at least temporarily, to switch the feeling of cold to “off.” A very practical asset discovered by the giant panda is through experience, as it lived side-by-side with the horses that have traveled the trade routes in the Qinling Mountains for 1,000 years.

Those who, unlike their cousins, bears, do not overcook in the winter, have found an equally effective solution to fight the cold: 100% natural paint that acts as a heater. We are still far from taking inspiration from him to heat upwinter But let’s be honest: Not that stupid, Panda Chenling!
