Another type of subspecies of Panda is called the Qinling Panda. This type of Panda was discovered in the 1960s, but was not classified as a subspecies until 2006. It took time to classify subspecies, because it has multiple qualities that make it differ and could possibly be mistaken as a Red Panda, which shares the name, but not many qualities. The Qunling Panda is from the same family as Giant Pandas, however; has a smaller skull structure. Another difference is the coloring. Traditional Pandas have a black and white coloring, but Qinling Pandas are known for their brown shadings. They also tend to be smaller in size compared to other Pandas.
Pandas are one of the more beautiful creatures in nature that are the most gentle bear out there. It would be no surprise that someone would want to own one of these beautiful creatures, especially since they were added to the extinct list. Since these animals are on the verge of extinction, not only has owning one become more desirable, but their care has become even more important if they are owned. Without the proper habitat, diet, and veterinarian care, a Panda can not survive in the wild or as a pet. Though these factors are important if you want to own a Panda of your own, one of the most important things someone can do is educate themselves. They have grown to be one of the most popular captive animals in a zoo because zoos have an understanding of the species and the responsibilities that come with having them and why it is important to preserve their species.
