If you’re tired of spending all your time on Facebook looking at pics posted by your friends of their kids, China Television Network (CNTV) has a better, dare we say even cuter, option.
It is an around-the-clock online broadcast of giant pandas doing what they do best, being adorable.
Whether you call it panda cam or reality TV gone to the animals, CNTV’s newest venture, launched this week, is already a hit.
Panda lovers can see the fluffy, endangered animals eating, playing, sleeping and, thanks to control rooms built on the base to detect panda action, never missing a moment.
The Chengdu Panda Base is a nonprofit organization founded in 1987 with six pandas rescued from the wild. It’s now home to over 80 pandas, making it one of the largest panda centers in the world, according to its website.
Last year the base welcomed seven new pandas, four males and three females, all born between July and September of 2012. The pandas made headlines last November when a photo of all seven atop sleeping atop a pink-sheeted crib was released.
