Adorable, Expensive Baby Pandas

Pandas are adorable, but are they worth a million bucks?

Zoos that want a panda have to pay about a million dollars a year to the Chinese government for the privilege of hosting just one panda. And that’s before the costs of a habitat, food, and care.

And if you want a baby panda (and who doesn’t?) then that’s another million for a second panda plus if everything goes well and a little bundle of panda joy does come along, the Chinese government gets a $400,000 baby tax!

Sheesh! It’s a good thing they’re so darn cute!
