Rare wild animals active in SW China woods

Infrared cameras captured footage of over 10 species of wild animals from May to October in Dujiangyan National Forest Park in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

These animals include giant pandas, golden snub-nosed monkeys, Asian black bears, and tufted deer.

The cameras were installed earlier this year as part of a survey in the national park.

On October 17, a panda was caught chewing on the camera, but fortunately the piece of equipment remained largely unbroken. 

On June 5, another panda, with an injured right paw, was seen marking its territory.

On September 23, another panda was tempted by some mushrooms but gave up on the idea. 

The national forest park is home to 14-16 wild pandas.
