In 1869, David found the first living panda. He found it in Baoxing County, Sichuan Province. David tried to carry it to France, but he was unsuccessful. At last, he chose to make it into specimen, and then put it in the Paris's National Museum.

David, as a French missionary, he posted many plants' samples into France. Moreover, he brought many new species of plants into France and other European countries.

They wanted to leave there with the bear and brought it to transatlantic France. That was very difficult. They carried the bear to cross rivers and hills and stride the Atlantic.
