Not to be confused with the large, black and white colored panda bears, small pandas are about the size of a raccoon and have a fluffy reddish-brown fur that ends in a bushy tail. "Joel and Shine came to us as part of a global pandas conservation program (GSMP) and brought 'fresh genes' of these rare animals to Europe," said Dr. Andreas Knieriem opposite the "Bild". "I am pleased that the two have settled in so well and that we can now sensitize even more people with the cute offspring to protect this highly endangered species."
