Twenty-three baby pandas made their public debut at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, in China. One of the cubs stole the spotlight in the cutest, clumsiest way imaginable.

The giant panda is native to the mountain ranges in the Sichuan province, in central China.

Due to excessive farming and deforestation, the species has been driven out of its habitat and is now deemed “conservation reliant vulnerable”.

There are only a couple of thousand giant pandas left in the world.

All the more reason for the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China – home to the world’s biggest captive giant panda population – to hold a public presentation of their twenty-three newly born baby pandas with great pomp and show.

All the baby pandas were proudly displayed on a green podium.

The center’s workers were swarming around the podium, arranging the baby pandas by size and making sure the presentation was going according to plan.

But one little fellow had a different plan. He decided to go on a little adventure of his own and fell off the podium head first.

Needless to say, he stole the spotlight, along with the hearts of everyone watching.

Fushun has become world famous for falling on his head during his first public appearance and is now referred to as “upside-down Fushun”.

According to the panda base in Chengdu, Fushun is believed to bring good fortune, as upside-down “Fu” indicates that good fortune arrives.


Fushun now weighs over 22 pounds and is very popular with both human beings and fellow pandas. His biggest hobbies are, as one would expect, eating, sleeping and rolling on the ground.
