There was a good Natural World Special on BBC2 yesterday about Chinese efforts to repopulate the wild Panda population. For those in the UK who missed it, its on the BBC iPlayer here.


I can see the logic of this costume being worn to disassociate the human/panda relationship, but I can't help wondering if these young panda's might try to emulate their adoptive parents by walking on their hind legs.

It all seems rather black and white to me.

You might be right about that emulation thing  :) ...
