Abandoned by his mom at just two months old, this baby named Qizai has also faced opposition from other giant pandas.
The fact is that he has a special unique color. Qizai is not white and black like all giant pandas, but white and brown.
This same distinction has made him a real celebrity in China’s Foping Panda Valley giant panda park.
Qizai was found weakened and neglected in a nature reserve in the Qinling Mountains.
His mother apparently just left the cub and left. But people are sure that she had the usual color: black and white.
Why Qizai has a different color is still a mystery, scientists only assume that the whole thing is in a rare genetic mutation.
Despite a difficult childhood, now everything is going well for Qizai. He is in great shape.
The park staff decided to soon find him a female for mating. Maybe their babies will also be born white-brown and then scientists will have more opportunities to study this phenomenon.
When Qizai was younger, other pandas in the park treated him with dislike and even stole food from him.
Now the relationship has become calmer and Qizai even has his own “security guard” who looks after him all day and makes sure that Qizai ate on time.
Quizay weighs 100kg and eats 20kg of bamboo daily.
According to a park employee, “Qizai is a little slower than other pandas, but cute, gentle, funny and adorable.”
