A giant panda named Yuanxiao has attracted many visitors from at home and abroad as it has become a star in China's national image promotion film.
In the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding & Research Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province, the six-year-old Yuanxiao has grown a lot since the promotion was filmed a year ago.
In the film "China Experience", which was displayed in the New York's Times Square from Jan. 17 to Feb. 14, 2011, Yuanxiao lays on the tree branch and licks his mouth. Experts in the research center said they are very proud of Yuanxiao.
"The children have really enjoyed their stay in China so far and we thought it will be great for them to come to see the pandas which is an iconic symbol of China," said a British visitor.
According to a worker at the research center, Yuanxiao is the smaller of a set of male twins born in 2006. His brother is called Yuanda.
"After the birth of Yuanxiao, we wanted him to eat more due to his small size, but Yuanxiao never did this. We think that he wanted to grow up with his brother," said Huang Xiangming, a senior veterinarian at research center.
