Being one of a kind isn’t always as joyful and lucky as it might seem. Especially when it about wild animals. Amazing appearance is accompanied by considerable problems. So did this adorable brown panda.
The wonderful panda Qizai is also different from others from birth. Due to a very rare genetic disorder, the adorable animal was born with brown and white fur instead of the black and white pandas usually have.The consequences for the tiny panda were rather sad. He wasn’t only abandoned by his own mother when he was a couple of months old, but also expelled by the whole pack of pandas.
But, fortunately for Qizai he was lucky when he was found and rescued by a group of kind people. Thanks to them Qizai’s life has changed dramatically.Now he lives the happy life he always deserved.
Qizai, whose name translates as «seventh son», was born in a nature reserve in the Qingling Mountains, Central China. His mother was a black and white panda, he was born brown, leaving the researchers completely bewildered.
Qizai now has his own panda valley where he lives peacefully. Foping Panda Valley in China’s Shaanxi Province is where the world’s only brown panda indulges in his favorite food (bamboo, milk and Chinese flour buns) and is surrounded by endless love and tenderness.
He has a personal caretaker 26-year-old native of Foping, He Xin. He also thinks that his furry friend is the most adorable panda on earth.
