(bird) We all have a doppelganger somewhere. Donald Trump may have found HIS 'look alike' in "Little Red" -- a Chinese golden pheasant at this safari park in Zhejiang province. A photo of the native bird went viral after a journalist saw the similarity and posted it online. The zoo staff sure see the resemblance. (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) HEAD OF BIRD FEEDERS GAO HONGQIANG SAYING: "We found that not only their hairstyles are alike, their eyes expressions are pretty similar. The Golden pheasant's eyes expression is quite vigilant if you are approaching it." (lots of birds) Little Red has lots of fellow Trump look-alikes. But he's the crowd favorite here and drawing plenty of visitors. (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) 30-YEAR-OLD FEI FAN SAYING: "Indeed (I) found there are so many similarities between them. Especially the pheasant's crest is so similar to Trump's hairstyle, which is glittering."
