A golden pheasant has become a star in China because people think he has the same hairstyle as Donald Trump.
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.
Although golden pheasants can be found in many parts of the world today, the birds are native to China and are a protected animal species in the country.
Chinese web users have been amused by a collage of the gold pheasant and Donald Trump, with many expressing their thoughts on the resemblance.
One user wrote on Chinese news site Sina: 'A new trendy hairstyle was born at the end of 2016.'
Another Sina user joked: 'As a matter of fact, the pheasant is better looking than Trump.'
One person said on another Chinese news site QQ.com: 'Not only does the pheasant's appearance looks like Trump, its facial expression looks like Trump's too.
'Look at its eyes, they are very similar to Trump's. The only difference is the man doesn't have a beak.'
