With all the care of loving parents, these giant pandas gently handle a young cub.
But look a little closer and you will see the pair are in fact of scientists attempting to ensure the helpless youngster is not affected by human influence.
The workers were pictured in China’s Sichuan Province carrying out a physical examination of the four-month-old cub while wearing costumes that would not look out of place at a charity fun run.
Who are you? Researchers carefully take the four-month-old cub’s temperature during a physical examination in Hetaoping Research and Conservation Centre for the Giant Panda
Helping hand: One of the scientists carries the cub away for the examination
Handle with care: The cub is placed in a box to be taken from its habitat
Headless: The researcher carries the panda away, confident his human shape has not been seen
