Smooch. Smooch. Smooch.


I’ll be honest with ya, I need to let these two speak for themselves.  Y’know, eventually.  They’re gonna need air at some point.  But all this twitterpating gets me emblushified.

Via Reuters; seen on Thursday’s Yahoo News.  Click the pic for videeyohh.

    This is right up there with the otter’s holding hands video. This makes my Friday.
    Thanks Teho! This makes up for waiting all day yesterday for a post.

  3. Yes, my name is really Cricket says:

    Red pandas are the most adorable things ever! Dare I say, cuter than kittens? Want to soft kronshe those earsies!

  4. Did you see the post-makeout paw dangle?!

    Red pandas are my favoritest!

  5. ahh.
    they are adorable.
    Red Pandas are my fav oo.
    and the kissin just makes them even more loveable.
    I hope they have beebee’s!

  6. Too Many Maureens says:

    I wondered how long it would take to see this posted here… that is SO adorable!

    …I can’t help but wonder, though, whether it’s not a case of one sloppy-eatin’ panda and another with a big appetite and no shame about where dessert comes from.

  7. Smooooch kissy kis kiss.
    Soo cute.. and heart warming.

  8. awwwww

    i want to get lost in those amazingly floofy tails.

  9. I loves it.

  10. Best comment on vid “watching them kiss heals my heart.” Awwwwwwwww!

  11. I got pandas in the living room, gettin it on, and they ain’t leavin till six in the mornin!

  12. “Pandering”? Groan.

  13. VERY cute. But, they have the same name? We have two at the zoo here. No making out as far as I know. 🙂

  14. My dogs used to make out like that. Sometimes for 10 or 15 minutes straight. Or not so straight, since they were both girls.


  15. Rob Coover says:

    I’m disturbed that the Reuters reporter said that the red panda and the giant panda were cousins. After genetic testing, it turned out the giant panda actually was a bear all along, not a raccoon.

  16. That announcer threw out more puns than most regulars I see commenting at CO. And that’s saying something! about 1 minute in: Red panda dangling paw! Could it GET any cuter?!

  17. Rob Coover says:

    The raccoon/bear thing doesn’t do anything to detract from the cuteness, of course!

  18. Red Pandas are the best! They are so cute. Especially kissing pandas!

    I volunteered at a zoo when I was younger and I got to work at the Red Panda area where they had two week old baby Red Pandas in an incubator. Their eyes were closed and they just squirmmed around. SSOO cute!

  19. sara!! lol!!!!!

  20. Mille Bacci Mia Serena.

  21. “Boing! Boing! Boing!”
    “Smooch. Smooch. Smooch.”
    What could be next, next, next?
    (“Otters! Otters! Otters!”?)

  22. master_of_fm says:

    not sure which is worse, being caught looking at cuteoverload by a co-worker or the having them walk in during the bra add that played before the clip (male btw).

    [LOL! Quick, click back to the previous post! – Ed.]

  23. Space Cowgirl says:

    Sara? I love you.

  24. Aww! So cute. I’m glad this was posted.

  25. Aww I love how they don’t only kiss during mating season. They suggested it was because after years, they have lub for each other :))))

  26. So sweet! Nice Bambi reference Theo!

    [Wow, the gold stars are flyin’ out the door today! – Ed.]
    [ ]

  27. LuvBJones says:

    Krikey, this is 2 jots away from being a fetish tape! Give those two a room!

  28. All I get are commercials. 😦

    [Yahoo does make you sit through one. It should only last 30 seconds, though; then there’s a delay, and THEN the actual Reuters clip starts. – Ed.]

  29. Juniper Jupiter says:

    Awwww, yeaah!! All you need now, baby, is some porn music(wukka chicka wukka chicka)…This is WAY too cute!! Melissa, honey, after the commercial, try hittin’ PLAY again. That might work for ya! 😉

  30. OOOOooo!! Kissy Kissy Cuties!! And what beautiful little animals they are too! ::ded from the Qte::

  31. Sure hope the black-and-white pandas are paying attention!

    I remember a comedian talking about pandas – “They’re too lazy to #!%#! themselves out of extinction! The problem is they take one look at each other and go ‘Aw, lets just cuddle…’ (Girls love me when I tell that joke.) ” ^_^

  32. omg!!! This so made my day. I love red pandas!!!!!

  33. I can’t get the video to play. Does anyone have another link to it? Is it from youtube? Thanks

  34. Cathy — it’s actually straight from Reuters via Yahoo. On my PC it uses Windows Media Player… and I have to sit through the commercial first.

    There might be an option for an alternative like RealPlayer, but now I’m only guessing. Sorry; I would’ve uploaded it to CuteCast if I could’ve figured out how.

  35. Awww shucks, Theo *blushes* thanks for my gold star!

  36. Cutest thing EVAR in Japan? Shocking.

  37. book_monstercats says:

    “Twitterpated”. I know I’ve heard it or something like it before, but where? It’s 22.40 over here in the good old UK and I’ll lying awake all night now.

  38. book_monstercats says:

    … or even “I’ll be lying awake all night now”

  39. Twitterpated’s from the movie Bambie 😀

  40. Thanks, Theo. I think I might’ve found it on I don’t know why I can’t play videos on Yahoo anymore. It just stopped.

  41. Emblushified! My new favorite word!

  42. tablemountaingirl says:

    What? No “I shall leeck you?” category????

    [Wups! Fixted now… – Ed.]

  43. Mary (the first) says:

    the best part was “cubless but still trying” awwwwww (although if they think kissing is how they get cubs . er . that only happens to highschoolers..)

  44. Thanks, Mom. *bows* I find that Snoop Dogg is appropriate in every situation!

  45. was that movie..from Canada..the guy who worked for the lottery… who had a friend that sold weed..and there was that con artist who wanted him to help launder money…”are you feeling all twitterpated?”

  46. pandasocks says:

    Aww. I do love red pandas! 🙂 BTW, video doesn’t work in Opera, if any of you are using it.


  47. I Hate Commercials says:

    OK, video I am sure is cute, but by principle, I REFUSE to watch ANYTHING that forces you to watch a stupid commercial BEFORE you watch the video on the INTERNET. Next time – link it to YOU TUBE.

  48. Yitzysmommie says:

    Red Panda Pron!!! Wow. Who knew?

  49. that is really cute!

  50. Theo! Oh. Mah. Gah. This is the second time in my life I ever heard (saw?) the term “twitterpating”. The first was 20+ years ago when my date asked me “Do you twitterpate?” I had no idea what he meant, he was disgusted, and the evening ended in disappointment for us both. I think you’ve given me a flashback.

  51. That’s it. We have hit the maximum of cuteness.

    I don’t see how we top wild animals who kiss/lick each other for an hour a day.

    Seriously, even for the Japanese, this is cuteness to an unbelievable level.

  52. Ask your doctor if smooching pandas are right for you.

  53. While you’re at it, you might ask if twitterpating is right for you, too.

  54. There is also addlepated clod pole in Jennings books.

  55. these guys remind me of Hayao Miyazaki’s POM POKO ^^

  56. book_monstercats says:

    Thanks, all, for the “twitterpated” reference. Huge relief. Lisa, I think you had a narrow escape there!

  57. AuntieMame says:

    Kissing? Or maybe their newest flavor of lip gloss is really yummy.

  58. Anonymous says:

    Aw, I can’t see it either – I get the commercial, then nothing 😦

    I tried to watch another yahoo video the other day, same result. Both times on a Mac using Safari.

    😦 😦

  59. Another Angela says:

    Will other zoos stoop to putting peanut butter on their red pandas’ lipses? Am I weird for suddenly wanting to be a zookeeper in Japan? Very cute.

  60. awwwwwwwwwww!!how cute!!!

  61. Too adorable, but I can’t see them kees … 😦

    The video plays jerkily for me. Boo.

  62. Oh, goodness. What crazy amounts of PDA (panda display of affection).

  63. They really are cute you know, those red pandas.

    Save the pandas!
