A hunter and his son were out in the jungle that makes up a large portion of the United States’ southeast when they ran into something they had never seen in person before. “It was a panda up in the trees. I said, ‘Dad, there’s a panda up there!’ and we called animal control immediately,” said the younger hunter who wished to stay anonymous. Animal experts arrived quickly, for they were very excited to look into these developments. Pandas were thought to only live in select regions of China, so they knew this could be a breakthrough.
When the New Orleans based team of biologists approved of the sightings, it came as a shock to the entire world of biology and far beyond. Richard Preston, a writer who has great interest in biology, said “In biology, nothing is clear, everything is too complicated, everything is a mess, and just when you think you understand something, you peel off a layer and find deeper complications beneath. Nature is anything but simple.”
This development opens up a whole new world in biology. Research needs to be done on how these pandas got here, how they have adapted to the southern Louisiana climate, and just how many of them populate the area.
For the past few days, biologists have been frantically researching this matter in hopes that they will be responsible for the next big breakthrough in biology. As Craig Venter Ph.D. put it, “When I started my Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego, I was told that it would be difficult to make a new discovery in biology because it was all known. It all seems so absurd now.”
This is one of the biggest breakthroughs this year in science. Make sure to follow our paper for further developments on this matter, and we will make sure to keep you updated.
