A tourist who climbed into a panda enclosure to impress women was taught a terrifying lesson.
The man was with two female companions at Nanchang Zoo in Southeast China’s Jiangxi province, when he felt the need to show off.
He climbed into the panda house to hassle a sleeping inhabitant.
That is when things took a turn for the worse.
Instead of the placid interactions the creatures are known for, the panda grabbed his leg and knocked the man to the ground where he was pinned for several minutes.
Eventually the panda let go for long enough so the man could make a hasty escape.
The intruder, known only by his last name Chen, said he wanted to show off for to his lady friends by teasing the panda.
After medical check-ups, Mr Chen was deemed physically unharmed.
