Sa Er: The Little Fox
Date: 2017-11-06

Sa Er is a 4-year-old adorable female panda living in Panda Base. Besides, she is the only survived cub of Jiao Zi’s triplets in 2013. Actually, it is rare to see panda mothers give birth to triplets in captivity. With this legendary birth, Sa Er has gained wide public attention.

Unlike humans, most giant pandas were born to be with underbite. As Sa Er is growing up, it is found that her teeth are totally different -- she is orthognathous. She also gets a pointed chin. From the side view, Sa Er looks a little like a fox especially in her childhood. For these reasons, she gets her nickname of “the little fox”.

Which one is Sa Er?


Little fox Sa Er’s secret base is the very door where keepers go through into the enclosure. Usually, keepers feed pandas with apples via the window of the door. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why “foxy” Sa Er always stays around the door like a “doorman”.
