When a human baby takes his first steps it`s a milestone that`s captured on film and video, when a panda cub climbs his first tree it`s a milestone that fortunately was preserved on video for our entertainment and edification.

Pandas look adorable chewing on bamboo, wrestling with each other, climbing a tree, tumbling from a tree -- basically they always look adorable.
