Available at your local Homeland Grocery Store.  For feeding your pet panda.  Which rank up there as cutest. Bears. Ever. 


But koala bears?  Also ridiculously cute: 

But my local Homeland doesn't sell eucalyptus trees, so I guess I'll have to settle for a panda.  ->

omg that clip of the koala totally melted me! Sooo cute!

I'd no idea they were so friendly like that, then again they're not actually bears....I've always heard that adult pandas are generally fairly dangerous.

I know. Koala's are the best. But they aren't bears? What are they, exactly? As for the pandas, I wouldn't want to meet a grownup in a dark alley. Not unless he was my pet.

They're marsupials, like kangaroos, opossums, sugar gliders, etc. Different species of mammal than the bear family. The females have 2 vaginas, so the male penis is 2-pronged, to accomodate both vaginas. Marsupials don't develop placentas, therefore they give birth after only about 4 weeks to fetuses that are extremely underdeveloped, so after birth they crawl into the mother's pouch where they'll latch on & nurse for several weeks before eventually reemerging from the pouch again more physically capable of surviving on the outside. Marsupial babies aren't called cubs, they're called joeys.

Hope I didn't just forever ruin your image of the koala in your mind with those details! Hahaha

Thank you for the biology lesson =) I knew marsupials gave birth quite early and babies developed in the pouch, but I didn't know much more than that. TWO vaginas? Interesting. One gets us into enough trouble, why on earth would we need more?

Yeah, thank God...can you imagine all of the damage that could have been done if someone like Bristol Palin had had 2 vaginas??
