The oldest-ever male giant panda in captivity has died at age 35 at a Hong Kong theme park.

The panda was known as An An. He lived most of his life at Ocean Park after he and a female panda were gifted to Hong Kong by China in 1999.

The female panda, Jia Jia, died in 2016 at age 38, making her the oldest-ever female panda in captivity.

Ocean Park mourned An An as a family member who grew up with the park and built bonds with locals and tourists.

“An An has brought us fond memories with numerous heart-warming moments. His cleverness and playfulness will be dearly missed,” Paulo Pong, chairman of Ocean Park Corporation, said in a statement.
