Firefox Live

Posted December 08, 2010 9:00 AM by SavvyExacta

Watch baby red pandas (aka "Firefoxes" - the Firefox web browser mascot) play on a jungle gym via live feed. The Knoxville Zoo residents are very active! This feed is similar to the puppy cam that was featured in the Animal Science blog a few years ago.

Firefox browser downloads help buy new toys for the panda cubs. There are also links to learn more about red pandas.

Watching these Firefoxes makes me want take one home, it's such a shame they are endangered... maybe the key to saving them is with cloning.

Scientists have been trying to clone a giant panda for over a decade and although they have created giant panda fetuses, they have not had any successful live births due to the clone being developed in another animal's womb. However, many other animals including a few endangered species have been successfully cloned so hopefully some geneticists out there will see this live feed and make it their life mission to bring red pandas into every home that wants one!

Not quite as simple as it sounds because repeated cloning would copy the individual but not help the species' genetic diversity but maybe someday….
