Panda bears are one of the most loved and yet mysterious animals on Earth. Although scientist try to find out as much as they can about this elusive species, they are considered solitary and secretive. Luckily for them, now we know more about their lifestyle, enough so we can help them survive in this harsh world.

There is an increasing number of pandas in the wildlife sanctuaries specialized just for them, where they get the care they need from loving keepers who do their best in keeping these cuddly bears safe and happy. Such is the case in this adorable video, only here we can see a baby panda that just loves the keeper a bit too much.

This adorable footage featuring a baby panda named Qi Yi shows her repeatedly grabbing a keeper's leg at the Chengdu Base of Giant Panda Breeding in southwest China. Baby pandas usually imitate their mothers' behavior from 5 months until 1 year of age, which includes walking, climbing trees and eating bamboo. This panda however, found sticking to her keeper's leg much more fun than that.

By age 2 the baby pandas leave their mothers and become independent, but unfortunately there are very few of them left in the wild, with a population that can be measured in thousands.
