Ming Ming, the world’s oldest panda, has died aged 34, Chinese state media say.
The Global Times reported Ming Ming died from old age and had kidney failure. She had been living at a zoo in Guangdong province.
The China Panda Protection Centre in Sichuan province said in a statement she died on 7 May, but it was reported only on Tuesday in local media.
The newspaper said wild pandas live 15 years on average, with captive ones typically living around 22 years.
Giant pandas are among the world’s most endangered species, with about 1,600 in the wild. More than 300 are in captivity in China, most in a breeding programme aimed at boosting the population.
The country also loans pandas to zoos worldwide.
