Although pandas are incredibly iconic for their black and white fur pattern, panda cubs are born completely white! This little one has grown out of its fluffy white newborn fur and already looks like just like its parents, albeit a good deal smaller!
History: Unfortunately, pandas are a conservation reliant endangered species, meaning they require specific management to ensure their survival. While their population numbers aren't decreasing as rapidly as other vulnerable and endangered species, pandas have a very low birthrate in both captivity and the wild, and the production of offspring isn’t as common as one would hope. Lucky to have this cuddly little cub, make sure you pair it with its mother to ensure it stays safe!
Scientific Name: Ailuropoda melanoleuca
Characteristics: Pandas are known to be almost lackadaisical in their demeanor, and this young cub is no different! Hand painted and sculpted in the middle of a calm gait, this baby bear is fantastic as a cute piece of décor for your desk or nightstand, as a toy for play, or even as a gift for a nature (or panda) lover!
Size: 2.35 inches long and 1.17 inches tall, this little bundle of joy is about as long as the cap of a ball point pen and a touch taller than a quarter stood on its side.
