Adorable Panda Video Shows Mom Playing, Cuddling With Her Cub

Moms really love their kids. But panda moms, they just adore them so much they need to wrestle and chase and cuddle all day long.

There are less than 1,600 pandas left in the wild, and although there are many international efforts to aid the population, the animals are especially hard to raise in captivity. Pandas have a very small breeding window and when cubs are born they're highly susceptible to disease and smothering by their much larger mothers.
