Panda costumes help researchers reintroduce pandas to the wild

Wildlife researchers in China's Sichuan province have been putting on panda costumes to prevent captive-born pandas from identifying with humans when trying to reintroduce captive-bred Giant Pandas back into the wild. See a story here. 

We photoblogged this before but I just had to post more. The expression on the panda's face, in the first photo, is priceless.
