Brooklyn welcomes rare red panda Mao Mi

All the other animals must be green with envy. The one getting the most attention at Brooklyn's Prospect Park Zoo these days is Mao Mi, a rare red panda that just arrived from his former home at Michigan's Binder Park Zoo. Red pandas are endangered, and Mao Mi is part of a Wildlife Conservation Society breeding program that's trying to ensure the survival of threatened or endangered species. Mao Mi has black legs, a furry reddish-brown face and body and white ears. Prospect Park zookeepers said Thursday that their cuddly cutie is very playful and loves to climb trees and explore his new home. Source: Yahoo News

That is just the cutest animal ever. Look for him to be the new plush animal that everyone wants.
