Baby Panda Is Just 5 Weeks Old, And Doesn’t Know How To Roll Over Yet

When you’re just a baby, whether days, weeks, or months old, you rely on your parents for everything.

They are responsible for feeding you, providing shelter, and even getting you to fall asleep.

One baby panda is reminding us what those glory days looked like in a video that’s quickly going viral.

The clip focuses on a tiny, 5-week-old panda cub, whose fur is just getting the recognizable black and white pattern we all know and love. It seems like it’s already rare to see a panda in such a vulnerable and transitional state.

The little one is seen on his back, slowly waving his paws around.

His motor skills haven’t quite come into play yet.

After all, he’s not doing this just to please the millions watching him: He’s trying — and failing — to roll over on his side!

The tiny baby tries to do so helplessly for a few minutes before giving up entirely and doing the only thing he can do: fall asleep.

Haven’t we all wished, at some point, that we could be this panda? If only falling asleep were the solution to everything!

He’s sure to grow up to be huge soon, but he can get away with it now.

Please SHARE if this adorable little creature totally brightened your day, and if he would put a smile on the face of someone you know!
