China: Rare albino panda caught on camera

News

For the first time ever, a rare albino panda has been caught on camera.

Take a look.

A nature reserve in China set up infrared cameras and was able to get this picture last month.

One researcher at Beijing’s Peking University says a fully-albino giant panda has never-before been recorded in the wild.

The panda is thought to be one or two years old.

National Geographic says animals with albinism face survival risks because predators can spot them more easily.

The Wolong Nature Reserve plans to set up more cameras to observe the panda’s growth and interaction with other animals.

According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, giant pandas are nearly extinct.

They’re some of the rarest animals in the world and only an estimated 1,800 remain in the wild.
