Rare brown and white panda cub

Sound the AAAWWW alert. This impossibly cute cub is the fifth brown and white panda ever reported. The newspaper article referenced here raises concern about some kind of genetic bottleneck. That's always a concern with a species as rare as the panda, but I don't see the connection to this off-color oddity.
It sure is cute, though.
