Sometimes pandas are in no mood for panda playtime

Chengdu,Sichuan,China (China Central Television) – Giant pandas are usually captured being playful with one another at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in southwest China’s Sichuan Province, however two recently released video clips show that sometimes these pandas are in no mood to play.

The first footage begins with a tranquil scene of the usually naughty and playful baby cub Qi Yi snuggling against its mother Qi Yuan. However, when mama wants to play, Qi Yi suddenly sat up and squirmed out of mama’s embrace and scampered up the nearest tree, leaving mama dumbstruck.

In another clip, two pandas Ya Yi and Xing Yi were captured making a commotion outside the closed door of their den. One wanted to play, but the other just clearly wanted to be left alone as it struggled and cried as the other dragged it with its mouth down the steps to their play area.

Looks like there’s no escape when it’s panda playtime.
