You need to see this panda rubbing itself with Tabasco sauce
Pandas enjoy experimenting with different scents.
A zoo in the US has released a video showing one of its pandas indulging in a rather odd hobby.
Yang Yang, a giant panda at Zoo Atlanta, has been filmed enjoying a type of sensory enrichment play involving Tabaso sauce.
In the video, Yang Yang can be seen rubbing himself on a toy called a weeble which has been smothered with Tabasco, and he seems to enjoy it.
It may sound odd, but there is some method to the madness.
“When the giant pandas enjoy a scent, they like to roll in it and rub it on themselves,” senior keeper Heather R wrote on Facebook.
“Many of these scents are well-known among our panda fans – cinnamon, vanilla extract, Tabasco sauce – but others may be a surprise. The giant pandas also enjoy the scents of isopropyl alcohol, white vinegar, and allspice.”
He must smell wonderful.
