In Beijing, a rare white panda has been photographed for the first time. Wolong National Nature Reserve in Sichuan province posted the picture on Sunday showing the panda in the forest.
The panda has red eyes, is all white and lacks the black fur trim on its legs, arms, ears and around its eyes. According to the organization, the albino panda is about two years old and appears to be physically strong and has a steady gait.
The albinism [a rare genetically inherited condition that prevents the normal synthesis of melanin, resulting in white hair or pale skin, as well as reddish eyes] has not affected the panda’s health. The photo was captured by a movement camera in early April.
Pandas are extremely rare – the Chinese government estimates less than 1,864 giant pandas left in the world.
