We present to start this week, the 3D model of a Rigged panda.

The giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) is a mammal usually classified in the family Ursidae (Ursidae), native to central China.

He lives only in central China, in mountainous areas covered with highland forests, such as Sichuan Province, parts of Shaanxi Province and Tibet Autonomous Region, between 1,800 and 3,400 meters. A region difficult to access to Europeans before the mid-nineteenth century, which explains its late description in the West.

Morphologically, his Chinese name is “big cat-bear” (大熊猫, dà xióngmāo). In Tibetan his name is byi-la dom (cat-bear). The scientific name of the giant panda is Ailuropoda melanoleuca, melanoleuca meaning “black-white”. Ailuropoda comes from the Greek word αἴλουρος, which means “cat” (of aiolos “which moves ceaselessly”, and oura “tail”) and of pous – podos which means foot. The species Ailurus fulgens refers to the red panda. The etymology of Ailurus is the same.

Until 1901, the giant panda was known by anglophones as the “party-colored bear”. Subsequently, he was associated with the red panda (Ailurus fulgens), which he has common characteristics as the “Sixth finger” or “False thumb”, which he also shares with Simocyon batalleri, the European ancestor of there 9 million years ago the red panda, the size of a cougar, found in Batallones-1, near Madrid. Ailurus fulgens actually belongs to another family, the Ailuridae, in the superfamily of Musteloidea, which also includes weasels, skunks and procyonids.
