The panda was captured in mid-April by an infrared camera about 2,000 meters above sea level in the wild, the authorities said.

Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.
The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa
tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.
