19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Young panda

One of the few Pandas living in the world. The picture was taken at the Research base of Giant Panda in Chengdu. Pandas live in bamboo forests high in the mountains. The only place where you can admire free-living animals is in China. In the center they artificially inseminate females for reproduction (pandas are lazy in nature and need some help). The plan for the future is to open as many reserves as possible, where they will be completely free.
