    Default Panda: Nature's Losers

    So I'm wondering. What is everyone's views on pandas?

    My opinion. I think any species that is too lazy to reproduce and just sits around all day eating bamboo does not deserve to survive.
    But nooooo all the liberal environmentalists think that somehow we need to intervene and save every species that is dying about because somehow we are responsible for it all and we are not a part of the animal kingdom.

    people are responsible for destroying nearly all of their habitat.

    I'm not saying they aren't stupid, but they had no competition/predators for hundreds (thousands?) of years and then ppl came along.

    Guess what. People's are animals too and are preditors. If they can't adapt to us, then sucks for them. Why do we have to be the exception?

    Doesn't their main source of food (bamboo) get them extremely high?

    We are the only species that see predation that way. We are the only species that goes "oh no, if we do x all of y can die out!"

    Because somebody wants Pandas around still. Not like we don't kill off other animals often enough. Regardless though, I think a better question would be why let them die? For all we know they might turn out useful in the future, and the fact of the matter is there are very few animals which can adapt to us, so it's our choice either way.

    We make a decision about whether we want them still around, then deal with it. End.

    The OP makes a compelling point.

    then I googled "cute panda videos" and changed my mind.

    People only want them because they are "cute".

    They are going to die out on their own anyways because they are too lazy to even have sex. They killed themselves, not us.

    Pandas are bears that went emo and got crazy with the eyeshadows.

    That's the reason they're going extinct.

    Am I supposed to care? We're still the ones left with the decision of whether they live or die, just like we are with almost every other species on earth.

    Won't argue with you about the cute thing though, it's bloody true enough.

    A huge amount of habitat loss, along with previous conservation efforts that failed horribly have led to the decline of Pandas in the wild. Also very small amount of Pandas are in protected areas, and all are fragmented, slowing reproduction. Poaching of Pandas was rampant in China for a long time also.

    Nothing but rats and cockroaches can adapt to us.
