Giant panda cubs nap at a nursery in Chengdu
The photo above appeared on page A5 of yesterday's Washington Post.
The caption: "This photo taken on September 26, 2011 shows a group of giant panda cubs napping at a nursery in the research base of the Giant Panda Breeding Centre in Chengdu, in southwest China's Sichuan province. China has launched its once-a-decade panda census, trying to determine how many of the endangered animals live in the wild amid efforts to boost numbers. The census — the fourth since it was first launched in the 1970s — is also expected to ascertain pandas' living conditions, ages and any change in habitat. According to the count a decade ago, there are 1,596 pandas left in the wild in China, with 1,206 of them living in Sichuan."

I think that is actually back room at Panda Xpress.*
Fun fact, they don't actually serve panda meat there. Damn bait and switch, I say.

He/She hid His/Her iPad under the blanket just before the picture was taken!
