Up to now, there are 16 countries that have obtained permission from the Chinese government to study panda conservation. Indonesia became the last country with the arrival of two giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) named Cai Tao (male) and Hu Chun (female).
The two panda couples arrived at the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Cargo Terminal on Thursday (28/9/2917). Regarding the panda cuteness, Smithsonian.com writer Abigail Tucker said, neuroscientists suspect that human interest in pandas lies in the anatomy of the body of the large mammal.

Its translucent cheeks and unique gait due to its short legs can stimulate the circuits of the human brain. In particular, the part of the brain that works when there is interaction with the baby. Babies have eyes that appear to be larger than adult humans. That also happened to pandas. With a circular black mark, the panda's eyes appear to be ten times larger.
In fact, the "face mask" serves to repel predators. Panda is also the only animal that has a false thumb. Flexible wrist bones allow these bamboo eaters to manipulate objects.
He is also able to stand with his hind legs and likes to play in the snow so it looks more funny. However, the distribution of pandas to various parts of the world is not only about conservation. Research conducted by scientists from the University of Oxford in Environmental Practice states that there is a Chinese diplomatic role in the country of destination.
"What other countries see are these cute and cuddly creatures, but there are many things that happen behind the scenes," said Kathleen Buckingham, lead author of the study. "From a Chinese perspective, sharing such valuable animal raising strengthens the bonds China has with the 'inner circle' of various countries," he said.
In his paper, Buckingham explained, panda became the opening of China's relationship with other countries. An example is when Mao Zedong gave a panda to the Soviet Union in 1965. Similar gifts were also given to the United States in 1972.

According to Buckingham and colleagues, sometimes panda rental offers go hand in hand with a particular business. In 2013, Scotland agreed to sell China various items, including Land Rover and salmon meat, which is worth billions of dollars.
While negotiations were underway, the Edinburgh Zoo happened to have succeeded in helping the birth of two pandas. The distribution of pandas to other countries was also inseparable from the earthquake that hit Sichuan, the original habitat of pandas. China leases more pandas to get temporary housing for its endemic animals.
