Infrared cameras capture two wild pandas in SW China

In a rare video, two wild giant pandas were captured together in a nature reserve in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

The solitary animal claims an area of about 5 square kilometers as its territory. They stay within their range most of the time, except for the mating season when they venture out in search for a partner.

Staff at the reserve therefore suspect that the two pandas are a male and a female, probably playing as part of their courtship ritual.
