Pretty tourist's selfies with giant panda go viral online... but she's not the star

A Chinese woman's selfies with a cuddly giant panda at the Dujiangyan Panda Base in Chengdu have garnered much attention online.

Surprisingly, it is not the female tourist whom people are talking about, but the furry mammal.

Photos released by the non-profit research and breeding facility, which offers photo-taking services with its animals, show the panda working its perfect angles and radiant expressions.
