Fertile panda mommy Qing QingSuper fertile pandas are producing many baby pandas. The new world record is Qing Qing (pictured), who has given birth to 13 baby pandas in nine births. Damn!

This leads Gothamist to hope that some day, people can have pandas as pets and that we will be caring for a panda in our apartment. We'll get bamboo shipped to us, we'll create air-conditioned "grottos" in the corner of our NY apartment living room - next to the TV, we'll make ice cakes filled with apples and carrots for panda birthdays, we'll take the panda out to Riverside Park for some fresh air...Life would be good.
