NEW YORK, NEW YORK (SunJournal.com) - All the other animals must be green with envy.

The one getting the most attention at Brooklyn's Prospect Park Zoo these days is Mao Mi, a rare red panda that just arrived from his former home at Michigan's Binder Park Zoo.

Red pandas are endangered, and Mao Mi is part of a Wildlife Conservation Society breeding program that's trying to ensure the survival of threatened or endangered species.

Mao Mi has black legs, a furry reddish-brown face and body and white ears.

Prospect Park zookeepers said Thursday that their cuddly cutie is very playful and loves to climb trees and explore his new home.
