This image of a wild giant panda was taken by a trail camera in a remote forest in central China. As few as 1,600 giant pandas remain in China’s mountains. They live in broadleaf and coniferous forests with a dense understory of bamboo, at elevations between 5,000 and 10,000 feet. This and thousands of other images of wild animals taken by trail cameras stationed in remote areas around the world can be found on the Web site Smithsonian Wild.
