This giant panda leaves its scent on a tree to remind its peers that it controls that particular territory. Giant pandas are territorial animals. The special scent helps circle this stretch of land with a radius of about three kilometers as its territory. It has exclusive access to all resources here without being disturbed by its kind. When most of the bamboo is consumed, the giant panda leaves for another bamboo forest to seize a new turf. In order to avoid peer conflicts, it may have to trek for a while.
