Cute Video: Surprised Red Panda!

If you need a pick me up to get going on a post-holiday Monday, keep this video in your back pocket.

A 46-second clip of a surprised red panda has quickly gone viral. One moment the adorable baby red panda is peacefully eating and the next it’s startled by a zoo worker in the most hilarious way.

These pandas from Maruyama Zoo in Japan aren’t the first animals to earn notoriety for human-induced surprise. Remember “surprised kitty?” The gray hued, white pawed kitten was the star of a YouTube video that’s racked up more than 66 million views since 2009 and even made it to Animal Planet’s video countdown “America’s Cutest Cat 2010.”
