One giant panda has managed to win some belated internet fame after being caught with its pants off.
Photos and videos of the unfortunate panda bearing it all went viral on Chinese social media over the weekend with netizens taking it all in with a mixture of ooohs and awwws.
It turns out that the images actually date all the way back to 2008 when Yuanxiao, a panda at Chengdu’s research base, broke his right leg in a fight with other pandas. Vets performed surgery on Yuanxiao, shaving his legs and leaving him pantless in the process.
Yuanxiao has since overcome that embarrassing incident. Now, nearly a decade later, his pants have grown back and his leg has healed. But, just when all the other pandas had finally stopped making fun of him, this hits the net. For his sake, we just hope there are no sex tapes.
