Brown giant panda becomes superstar in China

A seven-year-old giant panda living at a research base in Foping County, northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, has grown increasingly popular among visitors thanks to its rare white and brown coat.

The panda, named Qi Zai, is the world’s only completely brown panda, and was found among a group of pandas with tints of brown in their coats in 2009. The world’s first brown panda was discovered in 1985 in the Qinling Mountains in northwest China. Since then, there have been eight confirmed brown panda sightings, but Qi Zai is the the last remaining individual known to humans. He has lived at the Wild Panda Training Base in Shaanxi Province’s Foping Nature Reserve for nearly three years.
