Two pandas have been caught on camera scuffling with each other in China

Two wild giant pandas scuffling with each other have been captured on camera in a nature reserve in southwest China's Sichuan Province. Report by Andrea Lilly.

It's not quite Kung Fu Panda, but two giant pandas in China have proved these mysterious creatures can be as grizzly as any bear after being caught on camera apparently wrestling with eachother. The pandas were captured on a hidden camera in a nature reserve in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

After installing the cameras, staff were pleased to find they had caught a number of wild pandas wandering the nature reserve, as well as other local wildlife.(Source)

The giant panda is among the world's most adored and protected rare animals

In 2006, scientists reported that the number of pandas living in the wild may have been underestimated at about 1,000. Previous population surveys had used conventional methods to estimate the size of the wild panda population, but using a new method that analyzes DNA from panda droppings, scientists believe the wild population may be as large as 3,000.[22] Although the species is still endangered, the conservation efforts are thought to be working. In 2006, there were 40 panda reserves in China, compared to just 13 reserves two decades ago
