you welcome in Monsters of science, The new Futura podcast that gives pride of place to animals. I am Marie de la Boîte à Curiosités and in the first episode, we will be interested in the surprising behavior of one of the most famous animals in the world.
Do you know the giant panda? With aBig teddy bears Circled in black, it’s enough to melt us. But it is also a symbol Threatened. The proof is even the motto of the foundation .
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 wayIt appeared on clean white fur at the beginning of . Much like traces of ash left by their claws wiping away 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 aHowever, 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. This situation is very rare betweenWild – who prefer to stay away from it to avoid it by The researchers wanted to know more. But why the hell would a giant panda like to roll in ? Rub it and spread it on its fur. With a marked preference, moreover, for cool!
What lit their fuse was the Qinling panda. Followers of this practice, these friendly creatures form aSpots are light brown instead of black. 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!

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 upBut let’s be honest: Not that stupid, Panda Chenling!
