Baby pandas learn how to walk
Back in 1987, when it became apparent that pandas were seriously endangered in the wild, the Chinese created the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Rock Center was given the rare opportunity to scrub up and go into Chendgu’s nursery, where keepers watch over 4 month old panda cubs. These little guys spend their days sleeping, eating, and learning how to walk. Kate Snow’s full report airs Fri., Feb. 22 at 10pm/9c on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams.
