Basi, currently one of the oldest living pandas in the world, turns 35 on Nov 28, which roughly equals 130 years of human age. Basi in 1987 visited the US San Diego Zoo for shows. She attracted around 2.5 million visitors during her six-month stay in the US and amazed many visitors with her acrobatic performances. In 1990, she was chosen as the prototype for Pan Pan, the mascot for the Beijing Asian Games.[Photo/Xinhua]
