CHENGDU, China, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Video recorded at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding caught a quintet of precious panda cubs settling their differences in a mass brawl.

A pair of videos posted to the iPanda Channel on YouTube show the cubs at the Sichuan province research center showing off for the crowd with a round of wrestling that comes closer to an aggressive group snuggle session than any sort of violent activity.


The videos show four cubs roughhousing until a fifth cub playing the innocent bystander is dragged into the furry fracas.

The action comes to a close when one panda eventually flees up a tree and swats at a pursuing cub until the other bear loses interest.
