We thought so too, but it turns out we could get three zedebras for the cost of one lousy stinking panda. And the maintenance cost on pandas is exhorbitant. Those little furballs just sit around all day eating imported bamboo shoots and leaves at $800 per ton.
On the other hand, we feed the zedebras unwanted food from the zedoo restaurant and make money off them charging $2 a pop to give the little kiddies zedebra rides. The little kiddies just love the zedebras, especially around Christmas when we glue plastic antlers to their heads and spray paint them brown to look like reindeer.
So the pandas just eat money, but the zedebras make us money. N'uff said.
We're thinking of starting a protection business with the grizzly bears at the zedoo, too. For $1000 per month you can rent a grizzly to stay on your property at night. We cage them up each morning and let them loose on your property each evening. We also put up a "Beware of Bear" sign. Sometimes a barking dog just isn't enough.
