Lin Ping, the baby panda cub born and housed in Chiang Mai Zoo, Thailand in May 2009, has stunned audiences here with her most daring escapade yet - she picked her nose, and ate it!
Ping, 1, performed the cavalier act whilst being filmed for her own 24-hour TV show that is broadcast on Channel 16 here in Bangkok. Millions of people, who make fans of Big Brother seem like intellectuals, tune in daily to watch Lin Ping shuffle about her cage, eat bamboo, have a shit and stare right back down the camera lens at them.
Ping shocked viewers on Tuesday though, when she inserted her right index finger into her left nostril and, after several jerky movements of the digit, brought out a bogey the size of which, any half-decent adult male panda would have been proud. She then gave it a hesitant sniff, before placing it on her tongue, nibbling it, and then gobbling it down whole.
For readers who find this story 'hard to swallow':
