Training a Giant Panda for a research project. In collaboration with the Copenhagen University, Copenhagen Zoo have been running a research project for many years comparing oral cavity bacteria in different animals e.g., Camels, Seal, Sea lions, Tigers, Lions, Polar Bears, Red Panda etc. and now we also added Giant Panda to the list! Well done, Rasmus Bak Pedersen Nadja Viftrup Søndergaard! Credit to Barbara Heidenreich for the set up.
