Zookeepers at Wenling, in eastern China, who were handed this animal by an anonymous man, have been unable to work out exactly what species he belongs to.
With a nose that looks more like a rodent’s but long, pointy paws and white fur dappled with brown and orange, he is quite unique.

As he sits in his cage, the creature therefore awaits an uncertain fate.
And the zookeepers sit and monitor his development and hopes he grows up into something slightly more recognisable.
