Hi, Qizai, long time no see! (The only brown panda in the world)



The only brown panda in the world 

Qizai is a 7-year-old brown panda and is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world.

He lives at the Foping Panda Valley in China.

When he was younger, he was abandoned by his mother and bullied by other pandas, which is why he is now taken care of by rescuers in a separate enclosure.

Brown pandas get their colour by inheriting a recessive brown gene, Tiejun Wang, a spatial ecologist at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, explained to Nature in 2010.
