This red panda is totally grounded as soon as his mom sees this.

While indulging in a meal of bamboo leaves, a red panda in Krefeld, Germany, got a little overzealous with his favorite tasty treat on Monday and completely forgot the cardinal rule at the dinner table. Despite a fully-formed, uneaten leaf still protruding from his mouth, the cute critter couldn’t help but go in for another lick, chewing with his mouth open (gasp!).

Though we’re normally partial to proper etiquette, we’re inclined to let this red panda’s behavior go on account of his un-bear-able cuteness.
