Panda Updates – Monday, August 30

Red pandas are cold-climate animals that live up in the trees in the Himalayas and Southern China. Here at Zoo Atlanta, red panda Jackie has a couple of options to stay cool during the summer. The first is his air-conditioned box, which is climate-controlled. The second is what we refer to as his “Chill Spot,” a cooling tray placed right under his hut. The cooling tray houses ice packs underneath it, creating a cool spot for Jackie. He seems to enjoy resting on it to take a respite from the summer heat.
