Omg! Bird Becomes Online Sensation for Having 'Striking Similarity' With Donald Trump (See Photos)
A golden pheasant bird is now somewhat of an online celebrity in China because people think he has the same hairstyle as Donald Trump.
According to a report by Dailymail, pictures of the animal became widely shared today on Chinese media after a journalist from Hangzhou took a picture of the male bird and pointed out the 'striking similarity' between him and the US President-elect.
Mr Gao, the keeper of the bird, told MailOnline that he was surprised to hear the news, however he had begun to notice the resemblance between the two.
The five-year-old bird is being kept at the Hangzhou Safari Park in eastern China. He said the pheasant was called 'Little Red' because of his extremely red feathers.
The bird is more colourful than the other pheasants because he is very healthy, according to Mr Gao who looks after around 50 pheasants in the park.
The man told MailOnline: 'I had not noticed the likeness in the past because I had not paid particular attention to the pheasant's hairstyle.
'But after Trump was elected President of America, I start seeing more pictures of him and I think the pheasant looks a little bit like him.'
