A zoo in Japan is getting a lot of attention for a YouTube video of a furry little star. Three baby red pandas at the Maruyama Zoo in Hokkaido, Japan, were just minding their own business, eating a meal in their enclosure, when a worker stepped in and startled one of the little pandas. He fell frightened on his back and let out what lots of viewers are calling one of the cutest sounds they've heard in a long time.
More than 465,000 people have watched the video. Its "adorable factor" is even being compared to that of another popular baby panda video on YouTube -- featuring a little panda whose sneeze startled an adult panda in the same enclosure. That video has scored more than 150 million views and counting. One person wrote, "Six years later and it still doesn't feel old." Guess we can all use a good chuckle once in a while.
