The world’s only all-white panda has been caught on camera trying to interact with its black and white brethren.
Infrared cameras captured the albino panda approaching a mother and her cub at the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China’s Sichuan province.
Remarkable footage showed the black-and-white mother panda keeping her cool as the albino slowly approached her and her cub, who was resting in the hollow of a tree.
After the white panda stopped and started looking at the cub, the mother appeared to chase it away.
Once the mother and cub fled the area, the all-white panda returned and sniffed every place the pair had been staying.

The video shows the albino panda approaching the black-and-white mother and cub at the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China’s Sichuan province.
Reserve management authorities said on Saturday there was a possibility the female was the mother of the all-white panda, so they kept their cool, The Straits Times reports.
Mr. Wei Rongping, a senior engineer at the China Giant Panda Conservation and Research Center, told the publication: “The cub in the pictures is between one and two years old, and the all-white panda is almost the size of an adult. “.
“In late February, wild pandas in Wolong entered estrus season, during which female pandas with cubs can be very aggressive when approached or invaded by an adult panda.
‘This female panda was extremely calm and did not conform to the general rule. One possibility is that the female panda is the mother of the all-white panda.
There are said to be another 15 video recordings of the three overlapping pandas in a short period of time, according to Wolong National Nature Reserve authorities.

With no spots on its body and distinctive red eyes, the giant panda was officially named as albino, the only one in the world.
