The Panda, what would we do without 'em?

The Panda, the international symbol for the nation of China, and American's national symbol for Orange Chicken. Ahh, Panda...what would we do without you? And your amazing chicken?

As I have said before, I love Panda Bears. When I had a pass to the San Diego Zoo, these guys were the "must see."  While bears haven't always fallen in my list of favored creatures, my increasing knowledge of their true potential (i.e. ease at ripping human faces off) has definitely moved them a soft place in my heart. Bears, ranging from the Koala to the Grizzly, have this innate sense of awesome no matter where they are from in the world, and the fact that they can tear off a car door or a man's arm at will for a single Cheetoh, adds to the appeal. In fact, the artist that I based this sketch and coloring job after is always talking about how bears eat children. So, what's not to like?

Now, so no other animal can say I'm playing favorites, I say, any animal that can bite through steel bars, stalk  small children, hunt flesh, and sell such outstandingly delicious food as Orange Chicken all done with a smile, can find its way into the adoring recesses of my loving heart. Which reminds me, my favorite animal before the Panda was a wolf.  I wonder why?  He never sold me any chicken...
