Panda Updates – Monday, September 27
Have you ever visited Zoo Atlanta to see Jackie, only to find that he isn’t in his habitat? If you answered yes, you may not have looked up in the tree. Jackie is always in his habitat unless we are doing construction or horticulture work in his area. So, if you are visiting Jackie, don’t forget to look up! Red pandas are arboreal, which means they spend most of their lives in trees. Red pandas are also crepuscular, which means they are most active at dusk and dawn. During daylight hours, Jackie is most likely to be resting in his tree. Sometimes, Jackie enjoys climbing to the highest branches of his tree, so you may have to look really high up in the tree to see him!
