Sichuan, China: Some Wild Giant Pandas Love to "Pose"
SICHUAN, China, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

When sorting out the data collected by infrared cameras in the 4th. quarter of 
2021, the staff of Baiguoping Conservation Station in Tangjiahe Area of Giant 
Panda National Park have found that an infrared camera installed near Shibangou 
in Baiguoping Area has captured the figure of "National Treasure" giant panda 
for 15 times from October 9 to November 21, 2021, from which 18 photos and 14 
videos were collected.

A sub-adult (the animal has left its parents to live independently but is not 
yet sexually mature) giant panda appeared the most frequently in the videos, 
which were often in the early morning or evening. It ran at a fast pace or was 
munching in front of the camera. This sub-adult giant panda showed up three 
times in the same day, and the time of two adjacent appearances was less than 
20 minutes. Through the analysis of the time and habitat of giant pandas, 
experts have judged giant pandas should have gone to the water source to drink 

This infrared camera has made a few new captures after an angle adjustment. A 
pair of giant panda mother and child were leisurely passing in front of the 
camera at 2:50 a.m. on November 18. The child was walking at a tight pace, 
constantly catching up with his mother's footsteps, and looked very healthy. 
Experts preliminarily judged based upon the analysis of all the video images 
that the infrared camera has captured at least three giant pandas, including an 
individual adult, a sub-adult, and a cub.

The person in charge of the Tangjiahe Area of the Giant Panda National Park 
said that there are abundant resources of Fargesia denudata Yi, Fargesia 
scabrida Yi, Fargesia rufa Yi, and Arundinaria fargesii E. G. Camus in 
Tangjiahe Area so that our national treasure the giant panda could thrive 
carefreely. The giant panda was photographed many times in just 44 days, which 
has also confirmed from the side the good ecology and remarkable protection 
effect of Tangjiahe Area in Giant Panda National Park.
