Chónggāo de the duck

Joined the family in 2010

Chónggāo de is a stunning White Mandarin Duck that came to live at Planet Rehab in 2010. Mandarin Ducks are among the planet's most beautiful birds.

In their native land of China, a pair of Mandarin Ducks was often given as a present to newlywed couples - both to signify beauty and fidelity. He has beautiful blue eyes and, although Mandarin Ducks are notoriously shy, he has grown to be very comfortable with us and will even eat out of our hands!
