Panda costumes help train pandas for life in the wild


Would you be fooled by people dressed up in panda suits?

Because this giant panda was.

She has just been released back into the wild in China after being bred in captivity.

Her keepers dressed in panda costumes complete with panda smells, to avoid scaring her off.

At first, she didn't want to leave her cage... But after sniffing around for a bit, she ran off into the forests.
