Visitors at the Hangzhou zoo were worried when they noticed that the dark circles around one of the panda’s eyes were turning white, but workers have said that the condition is not threatening and that the black fur is likely just shedding from the panda because of mites. Still cute.
The Hangzhou zoo received a pair of panda twins named Chengda and Chengxiao from Chengdu in September. When tourists noticed that Chengxiao’s eyes were beginning to turn white and pictures were subsequently posted online, netizens grew concerned for the panda’s health.
Workers say that the base has offered panda therapy and the Chengxiao is now in good condition showing no real signs of abnormality.
“The treatment requires time, but fans don’t need to worry,” one of the feeders said.
We’d still nuzzle up to that ball of fur crawling with parasites.
