Extremely Rare Albino Panda, Possibly The Only One On The Planet, Spotted On Trail Camera

Talk about a one in a million find.

Well, more like 1 in 2,000… but quite possibly, the only one on the planet.

According to the Miami Herald, a rare animal that’s believed to be the only one of its kind in the world, and it was located in the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China’s Sichuan province.

An white giant panda was caught on a trail camera wandering around the nature reserve.

The incredibly rare video footage was taken in February, showing a pink-eyed, all-white panda bear alongside two other pandas with normal black and white color, and believed to be a mother and her cub.

Pictures were also released of the albino panda wrestling, and also possibly mating with a fellow panda.

CCTV reported:

“The reserve believes they were probably mating as the physical fight happened during breeding season.”

The albino panda was first seen back in 2019, however new footage has reignited the awe over this one of a kind specimen, as it is the only creature of its kind to be documented. It was believed to be around one to two-years old at the time of its discovery.

Typically, albino animals don’t tend to live very long out in the wild, as their bright white color makes them easily noticeable by predators.

However, this albino panda has survived for at least four years and appears to be doing well. Pandas are also typically pretty white so it shouldn’t pose too much of a threat, and once they reach full size, they don’t have very many predators that can easily take them down.

Unfortunately, humans remain the biggest threat to the panda population which is curraently estimated to be between 1,800 and 2,000 living in the wild.

Seems to me, this fellas might be safe from harm for years to come.
