15 of the Weirdest Jobs We’ve Ever Heard Of

Edinburgh Zoo's Pandas Meet The Public For The First Time

Panda Handler

This job is most commonly found in China, where invididuals are tasked with watching pandas and making sure that they behave in a proper manner. One of those main behaviors that they’re supposed to practice? Mating. Apparently, a big part of this job is encouraging interaction and intercourse between the pandas. I’m not sure how one exactly “encourages” this behavior, but I’m going to stop talking about it because they’re pandas and it makes me feel gross.
