Apparently, there’s an actual PAID job where you dress up in panda suits and cuddle real live pandas. Unfortunately, the job only exists in China. But it’s still pretty freaking cool. The purpose of the job is to keep pandas comfortable while they transition into being released into the wildlife.
The job is run through the Wolong National Nature Reserve. All you have to do is move to southwest China’s Sichuan province. Sounds pretty easy, right? Well unfortunately, no such job exists in the US yet. And since we’re pretty low on pandas, I can’t imagine a job like this will pop up anytime soon. Still cool to imagine though!
