CHINA (WIVB) – This job’s specifications are pretty “black and white”. This zookeeper in China puts on a fuzzy panda suit to help teach cubs how to live in the wild.

Human interaction can hinder a panda’s chance for survival once it’s released. The suit helps prevent the cubs from experiencing stress, since they feel like its their real mother.
